On Sunday, August 11, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., we'll be hosting a Volunteer Appreciation BBQ/Fun Day and we'd love for you to join us! We always have a blast at our BBQs. It's a day of fun and celebrating volunteering in Denver.
As you may know, each year, Extreme Community Makeover picks a theme. We pick the themes based on the overall vision of ECM. Past year’s themes were Be Kind. Do Good; Be a Good Neighbor; and Growing Deep Roots. This year’s theme is Get Your Hands Dirty. Along with each theme, we have t-shirts available to spread that message during the volunteer season.
We all have our own reasons for volunteering, and I am sure most of our intentions are noble but, can and do our personal agendas and intentions get in the way of the spirit of helping, and service? I think sometimes, yes; how can they not…. we are human, and we are works in progress.
Extreme Community Makeover serves eight Denver neighborhoods: Barnum, Elyria, Globeville, La Alma/Lincoln Park, Swansea, Villa Park, West Colfax, and Westwood. We take pride in serving these Denver neighborhoods to prosper and be healthy.
