October Extreme Endeavors: The Most Volunteers Ever
Dear Rachel,For those who may just be joining us or catching up, we’ve been on a journey of remembering highlights from each of the past 10 years of Extreme Community Makeover’s history. This month, we’re reflecting on 2016. In 2016 we hosted the most volunteers ever in one year – 4,090 volunteers! That is a lot of helping hands from churches, companies, individuals, organizations, and schools. Our theme for the year was to grow deeper roots and I think the video below (a favorite of mine from 2016) shows a great example of how Extreme Community Makeover is doing just that through our work in Denver neighborhoods.
