March Extreme Endeavors: Adding New Neighborhoods in 2009

 

Last month, I shared how Extreme Community Makeover began in the Villa Park and West Colfax neighborhoods in 2008. As we moved ahead into 2009, we expanded into the Globeville and La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhoods, due to some relationships in place with a few groups who were located in these areas. As we added new neighborhoods, it became clear that more and more residents appreciated the services offered through the helping hands of volunteers, while we continued to see more and more volunteer groups who wanted to participate. The picture below is one of my favorites from 2009.

The rest of this message includes ways that you can get involved in ECM this year, while celebrating with us at our 10 year anniversary party on Friday, March 23. I hope to see you there!

Sincerely,

Angela Bomgaars

Extreme Yard Care

With spring right around the corner, are you looking for a lawn care service at your home? If so, we would be happy to talk more with you about that because our social enterprise, Extreme Yard Care, can take care of your lawn care needs! Here are the goals we are looking to achieve through Extreme Yard Care:

  1. To provide quality, affordable lawn care services around the metro Denver area
  2. To support the mission of Extreme Community Makeover
  3. To provide employment opportunities for those who live in the neighborhoods served by ECM

The flyer below shares more details. Or you can head to our website. Contact EYC with any questions you have here.
