Art Is in the Air: What’s Your Food Order?
October 29, 2020


As we are nearing the end of the journey of having Extreme Teams leaders share their volunteer stories, this month we are going to hear from Lisa, who is the team leader for the Communications Team. This team shares stories about the kindness and goodness in the world that is demonstrated so clearly through ECM Work Days.

“Feeling lost, alone, and up to my chin in my own tired story I knew I had to make another change. I had left my old life, but in many ways, I was still clinging to it…action was necessary. I signed up for VolunteerMatch.org; much like a dating site a match is based on interests, experience and skills. I “liked” ECM and they “liked” me, and a match was made!” Read Lisa’s full story here.

One of our favorite events of the year is coming up on Thursday, November 12! Since we can’t meet in person this year, we’re going to have a “choose your own adventure” kind of virtual event! There will be a variety of options to choose from and you can make the event what you want it to be! Read on to learn more about some of your choices.

Choose Your Own Food Adventure:

  1. Cook at home
  2. Order takeout
  3. Have dinner delivered

We have special menus set up (similar to Denver Restaurant Week) with three local businesses in neighborhoods where ECM works – Kahlo’s, Osage Cafe, and Zaki Cuisine. Each restaurant has three meal options available. Order takeout for $25 per meal or order dinner delivered for $100 per meal, which includes wine and dessert.

Choose Your Own Art Adventure:

  1. Virtual art gallery
  2. DIY art
  3. Self-guided art class
We will have more adventures to share with you along the way, just make sure to RSVP to stay in the loop with all the details!



I hope you will be able to join us for Art is in the Air and celebrate the good work ECM has been able to do in spite of what has been a crazy year!
