Parking

The parking lot across Lawrence St. from the Mission is privately owned and is available to the public. The Denver Rescue Mission does not control prices or reimburse volunteers if they receive a parking ticket. If you choose to park in this lot, please remember that you must pay the amount designated on the parking lot sign! Six of the spaces in this lot are leased by Denver Rescue Mission and are available to volunteers; they are marked with DRM on the parking space and are in the center row of the parking lot on the far east side. There is also street parking (which may be metered or 2 hour parking) available on Lawrence Street.

    Great! There were 3 of us from this meetup group + 3 others. They really needed our help. We cut about 2 bags of potatoes each. Finding a parking spot was difficult. A private group came at 6:00 to help feed the almost 400 people they were expecting.

    I was looking forward to this, but it appears that there is no organization. i.e questions aren't answered properly. Unsure who is the 6 volunteers who gets to help out. I am looking forward to the next one!
