July Extreme Endeavors: We Surpassed 30,000 Volunteers!!
We are having a great summer over at Extreme Community Makeover! We recently surpassed a huge milestone – 30,000 volunteers who have participated in our projects since we started in 2008! Thank you to each person who has spent time volunteering and making that accomplishment possible.
We also hosted a group of nearly 500 volunteers for two days in June from Red Rocks Church. During this time, we were honored to have Mitch Jelniker, from Denver7, stop by to present one of the volunteers, Katie Thomson, with the 7Everyday Hero award! Check out the story and video here.

Come join us for a fun evening to celebrate volunteering in Denver! RSVP here.
Denver Days is a program during the first week of August (5-13) that encourages neighbors to get to know their neighbors by hosting block parties, picnics, and service projects with the focus on small, organic gatherings. There is still time to get an event together in your neighborhood. Or check out the list of published events here to see what is already scheduled.
