Mullen delivers Thanksgiving baskets to 54 needy families
On Nov. 19, members of the J.K. Mullen High School community—including students, parents, faculty and administrators—donated Thanksgiving baskets to 54 families that reside in the Sheridan School District.
The food and supplies were collected in a school-wide campaign coordinated by Beth Wright, director of service learning, then each basket was filled with traditional Thanksgiving meal items, as well as a gift card, and many also contained items such as detergent, paper products and extra food.
The same families, who requested the baskets through the school district, will be adopted by the Mullen community for Christmas.

Mullen is located at 3601 S. Lowell Blvd. in Denver. Established in 1931 it is run by the Brothers of the Christian Schools.
