Beginning April 1 through May 21 CBDR volunteers along with Community of Grace Church (COG) volunteers had a full day of set up, 14 days of feeding and one full day of clean-up and tear-down. During this time 4,205 meals were served to those that were being effected by the pandemic. 212 Bibles (English & Spanish) and 50 Jesus Films were distributed as well. It was exciting to see the COG volunteers talking, taking prayer requests and praying for people as they waited inside their vehicle for their a meals.
In the midst of this some of the food prep tents were damaged due to a wind storm. But God graciously provided a substitute tent so that the outreach could go on.
The COG volunteers stood out in the sun and heat directing traffic and ministering to people. Since the pandemic restrictions kept us from being able to provide housing for our CBDR volunteers, we had to limit the volunteers to those who lived within a 2 hour commute. So many of the same volunteers were there almost every day working non-stop.
June 3 and 5 another team of CBDR volunteers responded to the request for graffiti and trash clean-up during the civil unrest in downtown Denver. They cleaned one very large wall and the very next day that same wall had been graffiti-ed again but the team persevered to clean it again. The business owners were very appreciative.
