On November 3, 2011, the K Financial team delivered and served breakfast to homeless youth at the Urban Peak’s’ drop in center, “The Spot”. The mission of Urban Peak is to help homeless youth overcome their challenges and become self-sufficient adults by providing essential services and a supportive community. We served up 40 Santiago’s breakfast burritos, dozens of donuts, fruit and juice to the kids. We also brought them 5 bags of supplies from their wish list, including soap, shampoo, deodorant and long underwear.
The Spot was a much more controlled environment than what we have gotten used to the last few years when we distribute food, clothes and other items on the street in Denver. On our last few visits to Denver we have been criticized by the police and business owners for drawing crowds of needy folks where we distribute our goods. The Spot was a much more relaxed environment and we will definitely return there soon. The “Poetry Room” where we were stationed was all brick with nice graffiti that reminded us of the old tv program 21 Jump Street.
