Stay PAWSitive Holiday Food Drive

Give a little food, get a little art print

Looking for ways to make spirits a little brighter for those experiencing food insecurity in the Denver Area? We’ve got a simple way to give.

From Tuesday, Dec 8th through Thursday, Dec 31st, YellowDog will be collecting food for Denver Rescue Mission. You can drop off food items on Monday-Fri during our regular business hours (9am-5pm).

The dropoff location is at YellowDog, address 3881 Steele Street Unit A, Denver, CO 80205 in the York Street Yards warehouse complex in Northeast Denver.

 

Pick up an artful print in exchange for your donation!

For every three food items donated, you can choose one of five fun print items. Each is designed locally by the YellowDog team or our artist friends and printed with 💛 locally here at YellowDog.

Hug Your Dog print

Hug Your Dog art print, 10”x10”

As seen as a giant mural on our entrance wall, this print is the work of an amazing local artist, Robin Faye Gates. The 10”x10” print makes a cheery piece of home-office decor or a sweet gift for any dog lovers in your life.

mile high city

Mile High City art deco poster, 11”x17”

A perfect poster for all true Denverites, native or transplant. This Mile High City skyline poster won an award in 2020. It was designed in-house by Morgan and showcases the shiny metallic capabilities of our Xerox Iridesse specialty ink printer.

printables

Calming coloring book, cookbook, or journal

For our friends and clients, we made a few comforting treats to help everyone stay calm and sane during these stay-at-home times. Choose from a dog-themed coloring book, a cookbook with favorite recipes from the whole YellowDog team, and a daily bullet journal.

And, since we’re feeling extra generous, we’ll give food donors an extra 10% OFF their next YellowDog purchase! See in-store coupon for details.

Please follow mask-wearing and distancing guidelines

When dropping off your food donation and picking up your print, we require that you follow the State of Colorado’s mandate to wear a mask inside our space. There will be hand sanitizer available at the entrance. We ask that you sanitize your hands before and after handling the prints.
