September Extreme Endeavors: Volunteers from Around the World
We’re moving closer to 2018 in our journey of reflecting upon the past ten years of Extreme Community Makeover’s existence and this month we land on 2015. During this year, we needed a tool shed for all the tools and supplies used to clean up around Denver, so we embarked upon another crowdfunding campaign. To this day, we use this tool shed all the time! Another unique thing from this year was that we hosted volunteers from around the world through a group of 16-17 year old Japanese students doing a month long stay in the US, along with a group who had a conflict resolution conference for youth from numerous countries and wanted to spend a day volunteering during the conference. Check out this message for more opportunities about how you can get involved!
