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.
