Help bring cheer to our clients by decorating meal delivery bags! Meal bags are picked up at our offices and decorated offsite at your location. This is a great way to introduce volunteers of all ages and abilities to the service provided by Project Angel Heart and have a positive impact on the lives of our clients. All ages may participate. We offer a no-contact bag pickup and drop-off process at our office in Denver and Colorado Springs.
Instructions for picking up and dropping off meal bags in Denver:
- Denver bag hours are 8am-4:30pm during the week and 9am-3pm on Saturdays.
- Please come to the front (west) entrance, ring the bell, and we will take it from there.

Fill the meal bags you decorate with nourishing meals! Each gift of $60 fills a meal bag for one Coloradan facing a severe health condition. And thanks to our friends at Seattle Fish Co., your gift will be MATCHED, dollar-for-dollar! This is a great way to double your impact for Coloradans in need of nourishing, medically tailored meals.
