February Extreme Endeavors: An Extra Special Volunteer Spotlight
You may have noticed that volunteers are at the heart of Extreme Community Makeover. That’s why we like to highlight a few of these amazing individuals in a volunteer spotlight article we do periodically. The most recent spotlight is extra special though, as it recognizes Eric, a volunteer on the Projects Team for the past eight years. Anyone who has met Eric during an ECM Work Day has been witness to his selfless attitude and willingness to step in wherever needed. And others outside of ECM have also taken notice as Eric was recently awarded the Minoru Yasui community volunteer award at a ceremony at The Denver Foundation last month. Read the full blog post here. If you would like to begin a volunteer journey of your own, let’s talk more about what that could look like for you!Sincerely,
Volunteer Happy Hour : February 20

The kickoff meeting for our Extreme Teams volunteers is next Monday, February 25 from 6:30-8:00 pm at the ECM office. The volunteers on these ten teams help the Work Days run smoothly as they focus on the following areas.

Spring Kickoff : March 14
What better way to start the year than with a party? Our annual Spring Kickoff event will take place on Thursday, March 14 from 6:30-8:30 pm at Converge Denver.

Running a lawn care social enterprise like such as Extreme Yard Care (EYC) requires a lot of equipment, so we will be launching a crowdfunding campaign later this week. Stay tuned for more details about how you can get involved. And let us know if you have any lawn care needs you would like to have EYC take care of for you this year! Give us a call at 720.598.2845 or send us an email at email@example.com.
