April Extreme Endeavors: More Neighborhoods in 2010
In continuing our historical journey of the past ten years of Extreme Community Makeover, we worked in four neighborhoods after 2008 and 2009 (Globeville, La Alma/Lincoln Park, Villa Park, West Colfax). In 2010, we added two more neighborhoods (Barnum, Westwood) as we started getting requests to consider those neighborhoods. We were already working between Federal-Sheridan on the north side of 6th Avenue, so we decided to expand our reach south of 6th Avenue. Check out one of the videos from our archives, which was put together in 2010 as well.
Also, we are starting up our regular schedule of Work Days this week! Read through the rest of this message for more details about how to get involved.
