September Extreme Endeavors: Denver Gothic…Volunteer Style

During our volunteer days, we have lots of people participating and have all kinds of personalities shining through that put their unique stamp on what we’re doing. During a recent volunteer day, a few volunteers had fun recreating their version of American Gothic, which we will call “Denver Gothic”…volunteer style. Check out the video below to see how that turned out. And check out the rest of this email with more ways you can get involved in Extreme Community Makeover this month.
