Another year has flown by, which makes me pause to reflect on some of my favorite accomplishments seen through Extreme Community Makeover this year, so here goes:

  • January – Organized volunteer happy hours to encourage new volunteers to get involved
  • February – Kicked off our Extreme Teams, which are a group of 40+ committed volunteers
  • March – Hosted our Spring Kick-Off event to share goals for the year
  • April – Experienced 480 people joining our annual Go:Westwood project
  • May – Launched our social enterprise, Extreme Yard Care
  • June – Planned a lot of volunteer projects for 1,345 volunteers this month alone
  • July – Witnessed volunteers from around the country joining our efforts
  • August – Recognized the contribution volunteers make through our ECM Fun Day event
  • September – Made connections with a number of groups who got involved for the first time
  • October – Savored the beautiful fall weather that allowed neighbors to come together longer
  • November – Celebrated ECM’s work with new and long-time friends at Art is in the Air
  • December – Reflected on my thankfulness for generous people who want to make an impact in their community

Thank you for a great year in 2017! I’m looking forward to what’s in store for 2018…which also marks the opportunity to celebrate 10 years of Extreme Community Makeover’s work in Denver!
