June Extreme Endeavors: A Volunteer’s Perspective

June is always one of our busiest volunteer months of the year, since the weather is ideal for home projects, people have a little more flexibility in their schedules, and we’re running Work Days multiple times a week. When we have so many volunteers, it’s nice to hear from them about their perspective of what their experience volunteering with Extreme Community Makeover means to them. Here’s a snapshot of what that looks like from someone who volunteered last month.

“I wanted to send a thank you note for allowing me to participate in your organization. I have learned a lot from just my last two projects. These projects have taught me the value of working with a community and new people. I have learned a new side of hard work and the satisfaction with giving back. Me and my mom love going and will continue to go and spread the word!” – Gabby 

Sincerely,
Angela Bomgaars

Elitch Gardens : July 13, 20, & 27

How would you like to be behind the scenes at Elitch Gardens? We have an opportunity to help staff their concessions areas, while raising funds for next year’s Go: Westwood project! I went to it this past weekend and it was busy the whole time and really fun since I got to serve beer and margaritas all afternoon. Here’s how it works. We need to get a group of 5 people to cover a shift from 12:00-5:00 pm and another 5 people to cover a shift from 5:00-10:00 pm on the following dates: Saturday, July 13; Saturday, July 20; and Saturday, July 27. If we get all 30 shifts filled, we will raise $1,665 for the Go: Westwood project for next year. Feel free to invite friends to join you as well. Sign up here. Then I’ll keep you posted with the specific details.
