December Extreme Endeavors: 2016 Year in Review


As we near the end of 2016, it’s a great time to pause and reflect on the year. Here’s a glimpse into what 2016 looked like for Extreme Community Makeover.

What we accomplished this year:

  • 4,095 volunteers participated
  • 258 projects completed
  • 340 alleys cleaned
  • 21,395 volunteer hours invested in Denver neighborhoods

More importantly, we are building relationships, providing encouragement, & surrounding people with the reassurance that someone cares enough about them to show up and help in some way. The video below is a great example of how I have seen you and countless others make a difference as together we build a movement of being good neighbors to one another. Thank you for a great year!

Board of Directors Open House Event: Thursday, January 12

Have you ever wondered what being on a board of directors entails? As you look ahead to 2017, are you looking for ways to use your skills in that type of a role? If you have any interest or questions about what it would mean to serve on the board of directors for Extreme Community Makeover, we will be hosting an open house at the ECM office (4200 Morrison Road, Unit 3, Denver, 80219) on Thursday, January 12 from 5:30-7:00 pm. You can drop by for 10-15 minutes or stay the whole time – whatever works for your schedule. We will have a short presentation at 6:00 & 6:30 pm. The rest of the time will be informal so you can ask any questions you have and learn more about what it would be like to serve on the board.

Amazon Smile

Don’t forget that any gift giving you do on Amazon can lead to a donation to ECM. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Extreme Community Makeover whenever you shop through the AmazonSmile link, which you can find here.
