Season of Giving at Northglenn

With the holidays nearing, here are a few opportunities to help out people in your neighborhood, the metro area and beyond!

Christmas Crusade for Children

Help the Police Department bring the joy of the holidays to underprivileged youth as part of the KYGO Christmas Crusade for Children.

Officers from 30 local law enforcement agencies get to know local deserving families. They put together a holiday wish list for the children and match them up with donated gifts.

You can help by donating NEW gifts at the Justice Center, 50 W. Community Center Drive, through Dec. 20. These presents should be appropriate for youth of all ages, from babies to teenagers. Please – no food, used items or toy guns.

For more information contact Officer Scott McNeilly at 303.450.8852 or smcneilly@northglenn.org, or Officer Jeramie Lund at 303.450.8851 or jlund@northglenn.org. You can also go to www.christmascrusadeforchildren.org.

Donations Going to Local Families

The city is accepting donations of food and warm coats through Dec. 20. You can drop them off at these spots: 

  • City Hall, 11701 Community Center Drive
  • Northglenn Recreation Center, 11801 Community Center Drive
  • Maintenance & Operations Facility, 12301 Claude Court

For more details about helping or nominating a deserving family, contact Jenni Murphy at jmurphy@northglenn.org or 303.450.8904.

Holiday Bike Cleanup

Sat., Dec. 8, 9 a.m.-12 p.m., Maintenance & Operations Facility, 12301 Claude Court 

We’ve collected used bicycles as part of the Northglenn Bike Program all year – now it’s time to get them ready for donation to youth and families in the community. Volunteers are needed as all the bikes must be repaired, cleaned and prepped for delivery in mid-December. Tools for repairs are helpful, but not necessary. Please wear warm clothing.

Please let us know that you’re coming by contacting Jenni Murphy at 303.450.8904 or jmurphy@northglenn.org.

Snow Stormers Needed for Shoveling

The city is seeking volunteers to shovel snow for seniors or residents with physical disabilities. Many of these residents need their sidewalks cleared because medical supplies are delivered to their residences or so they can safely leave their homes. The volunteers can shovel before or after work. Need is great, as residents are currently on the waiting list. For more information, contact Jenni Murphy at 303.450.8904 or jmurphy@northglenn.org.
