SVGD Volunteers: 
     I have just put another new event on our SVGD web site.  We will be serving dinner at the Denver Rescue Mission on Monday, August 12th.  Also we have a School Supply Distribution event coming up on Saturday, August 10th.  I hope you are able to help at one or both of these events.  Both provide such a great service to our community!  Thanks for your help!

AUGUST EVENTS:

School Supply Distribution for the Jeffco Action Center, Sat. Aug 10th, 9AM-12:45PM, (We still need 4 volunteers for this event.) 6 Volunteers in total will be helping. We will be helping to staff the school supply distribution. Approximately 5000 students in Jefferson County will be assisted.  Last year one of the students wrote that it "made me feel like I was not different from anyone."  Did you know?...  In 2018, Colorado had the 3rd highest rate of family homelessness in the nation and the Jefferson County School District has the highest number of identified homeless students in Colorado.  We will be helping the Action Center to make a big difference in our Metro community.  The event will be held at an elementary school in Wheat Ridge.

Serving Dinner at the Denver Rescue Mission, Mon. Aug. 12th 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
