Community Food Basket Drive

The Pueblo West Parks and Recreation Department, partners with the local district schools each year to collect canned and dry foods to make Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for Pueblo West families.

Food & Toy Drives
Names are supplied by the school counselors and then baskets are made up from the food drives the schools have for both seasons. At Christmas time, the high school has a "new toy" drive and then other local organizations plan a
wrapping day and wrap all the gifts for the children in the families.


To support those in need, many Pueblo West residents and local businesses
donate the following:
  • Canned food
  • Hams and turkeys
  • Money
  • Paper products
  • Toys

Our donation collection is now completed.  Thank you to all the residents of Pueblo West that brought in toys and food items for our holiday baskets.  We could not do this without your help.  It brings us joy knowing that you give without any expectations, a truly peaceful feeling from within.  Merry Christmas!!
