SVGD Volunteers:
     We have three great volunteer events coming up in March for which you can register!  The first is coming up this Thursday- WE STILL CAN USE 1 MORE VOLUNTEER FOR THURSDAY SO PLEASE SIGN UP SOON TO HELP  at the event benefiting Colorado Trout Unlimited!   Also, on March 11th we will be serving dinner at the Downtown Denver Rescue Mission!  Our volunteers always love to help to make a difference at this event.  On March 21st we will be helping at the "Beautiful Junk Sale" at the Jeffco Action Center.  This Center makes a tremendous difference for homeless & low-income families.  Oftentimes, they get donations that are "above & beyond" what they need for their daily shop for their clients so they save them up and sell them at this sale!
      Also, I've listed some of our upcoming future events that have already been scheduled so you can pencil them on your calendar.  I will let you know when they are on the web site so you can register.  We've got lots of worthwhile upcoming activities!  I hope to see you soon at an upcoming event!

MARCH EVENTS:

River Stewardship Gala benefiting Colorado Trout Unlimited, Thurs. March 5th 3-7:30PM, (WE STILL NEED 1 VOLUNTEER FOR THIS THURSDAY IF YOU CAN HELP!)  4 Volunteers from our group will be assisting. There is training at 3PM but our event assistance will start at 4PM.  We will be helping with Ipads for the silent auction bidding and will help sell raffle tickets.   The event is at Mile Hi Station which is near I25/Colfax.  There is free parking at the location.  Attire is business casual.  Funds from the Gala go towards  CTU's work in youth education, protecting in-stream flows & temperature, reintroducing and protecting native trout, and preserving & restoring the state's fisheries and their watersheds.  This is our first time helping them. Dinner will be provided towards the end of our shift.  It should be a great new experience for a very worthy cause!

Serving Dinner at the Denver Rescue Mission, Wed. March 11th 4:45-7:30PM, 6 Volunteers are needed. We will be serving dinner to the homeless in their Downtown facility.  They do have free parking for the volunteers.  For some of the guests, the meals they serve at the Mission are the only source of nutrition they receive.  They say that "with each healthy meal comes strength to face the new challenges of each day."  They serve over 600,000 meals to the hungry each year.  We have helped them before.  The volunteers truly find this to be a worthwhile experience.

"Beautiful Junk Sale" benefiting JeffCo Action Center, Sat. March 21, 7:45AM-Noon, 6 volunteers are needed.  We are going to help with the sales portion where we will be helping to stock and stage the merchandise as well as assist buyers.  This event is back by request from previous volunteers who had such a great time! This enormous 2-day garage sale is the largest bargain shopping extravaganza in Jefferson County.  It is held at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds and offers 10,500 sq. ft. of jewelry, collectibles, vintage odds & ends, a vast array of household items, sporting goods, holiday decor & much more!  Our volunteers will be helping during the actual sale which continues all day so they will have the opportunity to shop after their shift if they wish.  This event normally brings in more than $40,000 to support families in need through the Action Center's services. The Action Center’s mission is to provide an immediate response to basic human needs and promote pathways to self-sufficiency for Jefferson County residents and the homeless.  We help them with their Clothing & Food donations as well as their Thanksgiving food donations to needy families.  This is such a worthy non profit!!
