Sheraton Downtown Denver Hotel and The Westin Denver Downtown culinary teams to prepare warm Thanksgiving meals
Denver, CO—Catholic Charities’ Samaritan House shelter will give hundreds of people experiencing homelessness a reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving Day when they’re served a full meal by volunteers.
Some 500 residents struggling with homelessness will enjoy a warm meal prepared by culinary teams of Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel and The Westin Denver Downtown. Staff and volunteers from the hotels will serve the meals from 10:45 a.m.-noon, Nov. 24, at the Denver shelter.
“All the men, women and children at Samaritan House and our women’s shelter will be served a hot Thanksgiving meal,” said Geoff Bennett, vice president of Catholic Charities shelter services. “We want to show people dignity on a day when we’re thankful to serve those in need.”
“We have partnered with the Samaritan House on this event for 15 years,” said Ethan Hughes, director of sales and marketing for The Westin Denver Downtown Hotel. “It is an honor for our hotels to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal for those in need.”
The Westin and Sheraton culinary teams will prepare turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing and cranberry sauce for residents. Volunteer staff from both hotels will help with serving and cleanup.
Samaritan House will also serve a Thanksgiving meal to some 250 women from Catholic Charities’ women’s shelter.
