SVGD Volunteers:
        Good morning!  I hope you all are doing well & managing to find some fun things to do around your home with this big change in lifestyle right now!  Personally, I just started reading a book that I haven't had time to read and am starting to clean up some areas in my home.  Also, it's a good time to call people and perhaps give some assistance to high-risk people that you know.
        All four of our April events have canceled and, for the first time, we have no events for which you can register on our SVGD web site.  This may continue for awhile.  I have noted the status of all of our future events below, as some are still tentatively scheduled and one has been rescheduled for the Fall.  I am not going to actively look for more events until everything settles down.  Meanwhile there are some opportunities for individuals to help in some of your local areas especially in the food area for schools & low-income residents and a few other areas.  I would encourage you to check those areas out if you want to assist the community.  Right now our format that provides groups is not the safest and our SVGD Board wants all of our members to be safe & healthy.
         Hopefully, this situation will change soon!  I know that once it does we are going to be super busy with many nonprofits needing our assistance!!
         Below, I have noted some information about the Amazon Smile program.  I'm hoping you might be able to help keep us strong so we can provide the many volunteer services that will be needed soon.  Thank you!

     Are you stuck inside and don't want to venture to the stores?  Are you purchasing a lot on Amazon?  Help SVGD (Single Volunteers of Greater Denver) from the safety of your home.  With each purchase you make on smile.amazon.com you will give back to our nonprofit organization so we can continue to provide groups to assist at the numerous nonprofits in the Denver Metro area.  During times like these, all the non profits are soon going to need all the assistance they can get!
     Next time you are ready to make an order on Amazon.com, bookmark this address instead:  smile.amazon.com. The smile program donates 0.5% of the cost of eligible items to a non-profit of your choice!  The first time you go, fill out your Amazon username and a password, then choose Single Volunteers of Greater Denver as the charitable organization you want to support.  From now on, just bookmark and click to smile.amazon.com and donate to SVGD every time you shop!  
     
Thank you for supporting our fantastic organization so that we can continue to have funds for insurance, a web site, etc. and can continue supporting the many charities that we assist in the areas of:  Hunger/Homelessness, Health, Animals/Nature, Elderly/Families/Military, and many other Other cultural and community events! We normally help at approximately 60 nonprofit events annually & that number may go up soon!  We can use your help in order for us to help our community in many areas!
