Spirit of Giving Parade of Toys Photo Gallery 
The “Parade of Toys” is a free Christmas toy, hats, and glove distribution for kids. We were blessed to be able to successfully do the effort in Brighton, Co at low income housing developments in both 2018 and 2019. The “Parade of Toys” is organized and supported by Cardenas Ministries and a community collaborative group that includes Cardenas Ministries in partnership with area churches, businesses, and community and business organizations. We know that Christmas time can be financially challenging to parents and our goal is to lighten the financial load for members of our Brighton community with emphasis on those experiencing hardship. We couldn't do it without the caring, support, and participation of a lot of great people. We acknowledge and thank them.
​We thank all those that participated and contributed to this worthwhile effort.
The 2019 First Responders Annual Appreciation Project was an multi-city ministry, business, and community collaborative effort that was organized in the Denver Metro Area and Adams County, CO to honor and thank members of Adams County and Denver law enforcement, firefighters, and EMS communities. 
2019 First Responders Appreciation Project 
We are grateful to Adams County and Denver first responder agencies, the Adams County Sheriffs Department, the Denver Police Department, and the many community partners and volunteers that participated in and supported the effort. Through their efforts we were able to distribute over 700 free 1st Responder and Law Enforcement Bibles as well as feed and minister to 1,200 heroes.
