Spotlight on the TLC Community
Charlie, a volunteer since 2010, has always been willing to go the extra mile. In addition to driving two routes a week, he often fills in for other routes as well as other tasks as needed. He has tremendous passion for helping seniors and a knack for connecting with all of his clients. Read about his inspiring story here.
Let’s Do Lunch!
1 in 6 seniors faces the threat of hunger and many more live in isolation. With the senior population expected to double by 2050, MoW America launched Let’s do Lunch, a national campaign to raise awareness and engage more volunteers.

Celebrating 50 years!
This year marks our fiftieth year of serving seniors in south metro Denver. From our humble beginnings in Virginia Baker’s kitchen, we’ve grown into an organization that serves over 400 meals a day. Yet we haven’t forgotten the personal touch that Virginia extolled, where our care and compassion for our neighbors infuses everything we do.
In celebration, we are having a community fair on July 28. The fair will showcase local businesses, clubs and supporters and include food, face painting, games, and fun for the whole family!
We will also have several open houses for clients, where they can tour our facility and enjoy tasty appetizers.

Drive Away Hunger!
“Thank you for the kindness and support you shared with my father Tony. As his health declined his interactions with other people decreased. But the volunteers brought him companionship and joy.
