SVGD Volunteers: 
      We have been filling our events & having a great time!  Thanks to everyone who helped at the School Supply Distribution last weekend.  Those Jefferson County students are starting school today & I know how thankful they & their families were when we helped them!
      We have two fantastic events coming up yet this month.  They are both with Habitat for Humanity- one being a Thank You party with live music as they are so thankful for the help we've provided them in the past years.
       Details for the two new events are given below.  Please sign up if you'd like to help at the Denver ReStore and/or attend the Blues N' BBQ Thank You party in the foothills. I hope to see you soon!

AUGUST EVENTS:

Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Sat. Aug. 24th, 10AM-2PM, 6 Volunteers are needed. We will be helping at the Central Denver ReStore on Rio Grande. We've helped them many times previously.  We normally are helping to stock donations onto the shelves, straighten up or rearrange some of the areas, and sometimes help with accepting incoming donations.  They have a new change in policy- ReStore volunteers will receive a 10% discount off of any purchases they wish to make on the day that they volunteer.  There is free parking and a lunch break.  Customers shop at the ReStore for new and gently used appliances, furniture, home remodeling supplies, pictures, and more at huge discounts.  All profits support Habitat for Humanity's home ownership program for low-income families.

Blues N' BBQ Thank You Party- Habitat for Humanity, Sat.,Aug. 31st 4-8PM. All members are welcome but please sign up so we have a number. On July 20th we assisted Habitat for Humanity at their Blues N' BBQ event.  Unfortunately the event was rained out 20 minutes before our shift ended and the last two bands were going to play weren't able to do so just when we were planning on enjoying the event.  Habitat for Humanity is throwing a Thank You party where The Duke Street Kings and My Blue Sky, who never got to play due to the rain, are going to play to finish the show and they've invited all of our members (even if you didn't help at the event) to attend! They have told me how very thankful they are for all the support SVGD has provided to Habitat for Humanity through the years.  They are going to also present the check to Habitat for Humanity.  They raised a record-breaking $50,000 this year for Habitat for Humanity so they are extremely thankful for everyone who helped!  The event is going to be held at a Brewing Company in Evergreen.  Please sign up if you'd like to come so we have a number for them & then we'll get you the exact location.  This should be a fun way to start the Labor Day weekend and a great opportunity to get to the foothills just West of Denver.  We'll be glad to set up a car pool if you'd like to attend.  Come have a great time while supporting this worthwhile organization!! 

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

FUTURE EVENTS:
     The following events are going to be upcoming but I don't have either the Event Captains or all the details yet.  Some of our members do like to get their schedule planned as soon as possible so I'm listing these so you can "pencil them" in to your schedule.  I will let you know when I have all the information & have put them on the web site so you can "officially" register.   
     
        Sat., Sept. 14, MuckFest benefiting the National MS Foundation, 11:30AM-4PM. The event will be in Parker.  It's a muddy obstacle course. We assist but don't run the course (still may get a little muddy!)  What fun while helping a good cause!
        Sat., Sept. 21  Food Bank of the Rockies, 8:45AM-Noon.  This in NE Aurora.  We will be putting food boxes together for low-income families.
       
If you know of any non-profit organizations that can use a group of 6 or more volunteers during an upcoming evening or weekend please feel free to give me the information as I'll be glad to explore the possibility of organizing a group of our SVGD volunteers to assist!  Thank you!
