cliff-and-diane-lesser-with-baby-aliceThe Denver Health Foundation is a non-profit corporation that supports the Denver Health Medical Center’s services for families in the Denver and Rocky Mountain region. “People don’t immediately think of Denver, Colorado as a place where impoverished conditions exist,” says Robin Engleberg, the foundation’s program manager. However, the harsh reality is approximately 85% of the children and families The Denver Health Foundation serve live below the federal poverty line.

Approximately 4,000 infants are born each year at the center, and the provision of essentials to the families has become a vital part of the programs efforts. The Denver Health Foundation has been a part of the K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers community partner program since 2009. “Our partnership with K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers has been instrumental in our ability to create our ‘Warm Welcome Bags’ filled with essential items such as baby clothes, bibs and blankets,” says Robin.

Since becoming a part of our Funded Agency Program, the Denver Health Foundation has been able to expand the scope of their programs offered by creating special distributions for families, such as the recent “Christmas in July” giveaway that included new Toys “R” Us and Gerber Childrenswear, as well as essential items like summer dresses, pajamas, swim trunks, running suits and much more.Pictured is our dedicated volunteer, Cliff Lesser, who took a day during his recent visit to the Denver area to see first-hand how new product can make a profound impact in the lives of those who need it. Cliff spent the day volunteering at the Denver Health Foundation, unpacking apparel and visiting families who are a part of the program.

unnamed-5In late September Hurricane Matthew caused destruction from parts of the Caribbean to south eastern parts of the United States. What started as a small tropical storm quickly grew into a category 4 hurricane taking the lives of over 1,000 people. We are working with our disaster response partners and local agencies to see how we can best support people impacted in the Caribbean and the U.S. by Hurricane Matthew.

  • Hurricane Matthew has left thousands of people and families displaced and in need of essential items to rebuild their lives during the upcoming months.
  • New product donated by the fashion, home and children’s industries will go far in helping people in need.
  • Individuals and families affected by the hurricane  can use men’s, women’s and children’s apparel – especially shoes, socks and underwear. Towels, sheets, blankets, comforters, pillows and home items are also needed. 
If you have any of the necessary products, or know a company that does, please contact Carla Fattal at or 646-362-9088.
