Mile Hi Church in partnership with The Action Center

Drive–Thru School Supply Drive

This year, we are having a drive-thru school supply drive where you can drop off your donations without leaving your car!

Download the school supply list here.

Fri., July 31,
11 a.m. – 1 p.m., Mile Hi Church parking 

If you would like to make a financial donation, the best way is to mail us a check at: 9077 W. Alameda Avenue, Lakewood, CO, 80226

The Action Center helps almost 5,000 children in Jefferson County as well as those who are experiencing homelessness to start the school year right. We provide children in Pre-K through Grade 12 with a bag of school supplies and a new backpack. With the support of Mile Hi’s donations, we can make sure each child and their families are ready to start the new year on firm footing.

To Volunteer:
Collecting School Supplies
We’ll need some help directing traffic, greeting folks, and sorting school supplies on the days of the drive-thru. All participants will be required to wear masks and gloves. Gloves will be provided for those who need them. Safe social distancing will be practiced!

Toilet Paper & Diaper Drive

Make-A-Difference teams up with The Action Center to help the hundreds of families in need that they see each day. Many families go without basic needs like toilet paper. And many of these families have little ones who need diapers.

Blessing Bags

Mile Hi Church will be creating blessing bags to support those in need in the greater Denver area. These bags will be given to local community service organizations, and can also be kept by congregants to give when they meet someone in need. We are collecting sanitizing wipes, shampoo, tampons, lotion, razors, shaving cream, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, chewy snack bars, mouthwash, and sunscreen.

Habitat for Humanity Pumpkin Patch

Turning pumpkins into homes. Through October, we sell pumpkins on the corner of Alameda and Garrison with all proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver. In addition to purchasing your pumpkins here, we have a lot of opportunities for you to volunteer your time since this is a month long event.
