Catholic Charities is gearing up for its 4th Annual Stuff the Bird from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 14. This event kicks off the holiday food campaign.

Bring a turkey and drop it off in a drive-through parking lot at 14 W. Bijou St. Gift cards also are accepted.

From a news release:
Turkeys are used in the Thanksgiving Day meal preparation at Marian House for community members in need; for distribution to families, churchs, schools, and food pantries throughout our 10 county service area in Central Colorado; and for use in meal preparation at the Marian House to help deliver more than 215,000 meals a year.

Catholic Charities' Marian House goal this year is to collect 1,200 turkeys before Thanksgiving Day to meet out client requests, which is part of the overall Turkey Team Collaboration goal. The Turkey Team is comprised of Car & Share Food Bank, Springs Rescue Mission, and Catholic Charities of Central Colorado.
Turkeys can be dropped off at the Marian House dock anytime in November from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
