Extreme Community Makeover is different this year, as are most things. Volunteers can only come in groups of 10, there are staggered arrival times and lunch, and everyone wears masks and stays 6 feet apart. At a time where we are limiting our social interactions, how do you keep up community, especially for an organization with community in the name?
This month's volunteer story from our Extreme Teams leaders features Alicia. Alicia got her start volunteering with Extreme Community Makeover through participating in Work Days with the Mile High Young Professionals group and then eventually became the leader of the Supplies Team, which makes sure everyone has what they need to get the job done during Work Days.
We are back into a routine of running Work Days again this summer and are thankful for all the people who have joined us to have a safe volunteer experience, while giving back to their community. We haven't seen the out of town groups that often join us each summer, but hopefully they will be back next summer and appreciate our local volunteers more than ever.
