The City if Centennial’s Youth Commission and Senior Commission have partnered with Endeavor Academy for the 27th Annual Thanksgiving SHARE Basket Project. The project is a food drive that will help area people in need.

According to a city press release, those interested in participating can bring non-perishable foods to the Centennial Civic Center located at 13133 E Arapahoe Road and place the items in the bin.

The donated food will be distributed to 228 needy families in the SafeHouse battered women’s shelter, Developmental Pathways, the Denver Indian Family Resource Center, Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, the outpatient cancer clinic at University Hospital, the National Kidney Foundation, local houses of worship, needy families with children attending Endeavor Academy.

According to the release, the SHARE Project began in 1988 and has provided food to 5,819 hungry families so they could enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.

“This project has no overhead,” the release said. “Every penny spent buys food, non-food items and baskets in which to put them.”

The collection deadline is Wednesday, Nov. 12.
