Dear LoDo Neighbor,

For many of us, the holiday season means enjoying the warmth and coziness of one’s own home. However, we can often overlook how important clean clothes, clean sheets, and dry socks can be in building this simple comfort. Each holiday season, the LoDo Cares Committee likes to give back to our neighbors in need at The Barth Hotel, and we hope you’ll join us in this holiday tradition to provide a clean, safe, and convenient resource that so many of us take for granted.

The Barth Hotel is a LoDo institution dedicated to providing an assisted and affordable living property for seniors and adults with disabilities.  Because of its emphasis on resident programs, The Barth Hotel does not always have the means to provide or improve amenities, like replacing out-of-date and non-functioning washers and dryers or supplying winter clothing for Denver’s coldest months.

As a friend to the LoDo neighborhood, The Barth Hotel needs our help! Your support would allow The Barth Hotel to renovate their laundry spaces. Though we may not be able to raise the funds to fully renovate the laundry room this season, we can still chip away at some of the essential tasks that come with creating a better overall experience for residents, including:

  • Replace old and decrepit washers and dryers with new, energy-efficient models
  • Re-outfit the laundry spaces with adequate laundry supplies
  • Ensure proper configuration for required water, gas, electric, and ventilation
  • Show that comfort and cleanliness is NOT a luxury for the few

Both LoDo Cares and The Barth Hotel appreciate any amount you can contribute. You can mail your donations to: LoDo District, Inc. 1536 Wynkoop, Suite 108, Denver, CO 80202 and please make checks out to LoDo District, Inc.

Or use the secure Online Donation Form .

If you would prefer to donate goods directly, SHO is also accepting hats, gloves, scarves, socks, or any cold-weather clothing at their main office at 1510 17th St., Denver, CO 80202.


Help us in making LoDo not just a destination, but also a warm and compassionate place to live.

Thank you for your continued support!
