What started as a way to get Steve and Jody Robinson’s three kids involved in community service five years ago, has become a Castle Pines community tradition.
Nearly one hundred volunteers donated cash, food, time, and creativity to pull together Thanksgiving meals on November 17 at the Castle Pines community center. More than fifty turkeys with all the trimmings were delivered on November 18 to The Women’s Crisis and Family Outreach Center in Castle Rock.
Robinson said, “We have great friends and families and live in a wonderful community.”
Kids, including Cub Scout Pack 856, made homemade Thanksgiving cards to include in every box and King Soopers provided freezer storage for turkey. Extended family and friends, including the Shugarts, Parcells, Leachs, Scarboroughs, Campbells, Giles, Muhrs and Arnetts all helped to ensure that fifty families will have a happy Thanksgiving.
