365 volunteers participated to work alongside Westwood residents cleaning up alleys, removing graffiti, doing community art projects, preparing a garden for planting, and doing cleanups alongside Morrison Road and Alameda Avenue on our Go: Westwood Work Day (April 23, 2016). This was all in an effort to help revitalize the Westwood neighborhood and cultivate community among residents.
Extreme Community Makeover is appreciative to The Denver Foundation for their support of the Go Westwood project. The Denver Foundation is a community foundation that seeks to inspire people and mobilize resources to strengthen the Metro Denver community. Community foundations are the endowments – permanent pools of money contributed by donors to benefit a specific geographic area. In 2015, The Foundation gave $97 million in grants to nonprofits.
Thank you to all those who volunteered for Go: Westwood! You’ve made a tremendous difference, one block at a time.
