SVGD Volunteers: 
     We had a great time at the Pumpkin Fest at Chatfield Farms benefiting the Denver Botanic Gardens yesterday plus had great weather!  Thanks to those of you who helped!  They gave us each a free pumpkin.  We had thousands of people there having fun, going through the Corn Maze, getting hay rides, enjoying the children's carnival and getting their pumpkins!
      We still need a group of volunteers to help next Saturday at the Clothing Donation Sorting for the Jeffco Action Center.  Please sign up soon if you can help.  We always enjoy the event but so far no one has signed up!!  I don't want to let them down as the last time we were going to help there was bad weather.  Please help if you can.  Thank you!

OCTOBER EVENT:

Clothing Donation Sorting for Jeffco Action Center, Sat., Oct. 19th, 9AM-Noon. 6 Volunteers are needed to help sort the donated clothing for the busy week ahead.   During the week people in need shop with volunteer shoppers in their donation "store" that is set up by sizes and types of clothing just like a regular store.  They are told how many items they can receive at the store and are given a time limit for their shopping. We have helped with this portion of their center's activities before and really enjoyed the experience!! 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.  They are located in Lakewood. We were going to help them in January but the event was canceled due to the bad weather. I'm happy that we have a chance again to help!


Please sign up for any of these events on the www.svgd.org  web site.
