Bag Decoration

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.

Read our specific instructions for picking up and dropping off meal bags in 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.
