Occupy Denver could always use supplies. If you would like to donate or know what you can do to help, please look through this and see what you can bring. Even the littlest of things help!
Other donations can be mailed at 1550 Larimer St. Box 224 Denver, CO 80202!
Occupy Denver, of course, is still taking things for our people on ground. Donations will now have to be portable, easy to carry — if not, alert the folks on ground that you have donations and ask them to help them carry them from your car. You will have to park away, being told the library may be the better option. When in doubt, ask the occupiers for help and where you can donate. There was a small child on ground, please don’t turn away! It’s imperative that we help them get winter gear to keep warm. Tonight was 20 degrees when I checked in and people are concerned about the cold:
- Flattened cardboard boxes (they’re using this to lay over sidewalks to protect them from the cold)
- Sleeping bags
- First aid items
- Gloves, hats, and scarves
- Socks! Especially wool, but lots and lots of socks!
- Long johns (I’m personally suggesting this)
- Extra long sleeved shirts and sweatshirts
Being told that it’s preferable to bring down prepared food. There is currently no kitchen, the police seem to be tearing it down. Although small amounts of perishable food are welcomed. Bring them portable, the people down there are having items stolen from them.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT DONATIONS MUST BE SOMETHING YOU CAN CARRY. PLEASE ASK THE PEOPLE ON GROUND FOR HELP IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS. DO NOT PULL ON THE SIDE AND DISRUPT THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC!
We will be holding a 6pm sunset peace vigil at Civic Center Park tonight in response to the events yesterday here in Denver, and some of the events over the last week (Scott Olsen in Oakland especially). Please join us in publicly condemning violence tonight!
