The Pueblo West Parks and Recreation Department partners with the local Pueblo West schools each year to collect canned and dry foods to make Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for Pueblo West families.
Family names are given to the Parks office by the Pueblo West elementary and middle schools. If you are in need of a basket, you will need to contact the school counselor where your child attends and talk with them to get on our list. Only families in Pueblo West are eligible to receive a food basket.
The Pueblo West Parks office will only accept currently dated, not expired canned or dry foods. Donation times are between 8:00am & 3:00pm.
