January Extreme Endeavors: A New Year with New Possibilities
A new year filled with new possibilities! I am eagerly looking forward to what this year holds for Extreme Community Makeover as there are exciting opportunities ahead, which I will share as they unfold. Until then, one of my goals for this year is that we can build a neighbor to neighbor movement that begins on the Work Days and extends beyond the projects as connections are made and relationships formed. I would love to connect with you sometime to hear about any ideas you have to participate in reaching that goal or to see how you would like to be involved in ECM. You can show up at any of the upcoming events mentioned in this message or give me a call and we can talk more. Looking forward to a great year!

If so, we will be hosting an open house event on Thursday, January 12 between 5:30-7:00 pm at the ECM office (4200 Morrison Road, Unit 3, Denver, 80219), where you can ask more questions about what the Extreme Community Makeover board of directors is all about and how you can get involved.

We will be hosting a winter Work Day on Saturday, January 28 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm and will be working on an alley clean-up project. If you are interested in participating, you can register as a group or as an individual:
The group of people who are most instrumental in helping each of our Work Days run smoothly is our Extreme Teams volunteers. This amazing team of people gives so much time and effort toward using their skills to make a difference through ten different teams. Learn more about each of the teams here. You can find more details about the expectations for getting involved here. Or you can come to our volunteer happy hour on January 25 to learn more then. We would love to have you on the team!
