Volunteers Needed for 2 Sept. Events!

SVGD Volunteers:
    The Taking Flight Gala for Warren Village was a fantastic event last weekend!  Thank you to the volunteers who assisted!

    There are two upcoming events the last weekend of September, about 10 days from now, for which we need volunteers.  Our registrations have been a little slow this month, perhaps we've all still been in "Summer" mode.  We still need all the volunteers for both of the last two September events:  the "Beautiful Junk Sale" benefiting the Jeffco Action Center &  the large donation for Habitat for Humanity at the Convention Center.  Please check your schedule and sign up if you can help at these events.  Thank you!
     I do have three of our October events confirmed.  They are not on the web site as I don't have the Event Captains yet but if you'd like to pencil them on your schedule I'll send out a notice when they are on the web site so you can register.  We will be helping KUVO public radio station with their Fall Membership Drive on Thurs. Oct. 4th from 4:30-8PM.  Then we will be helping the American Lung Assn. with a packet pickup booth for the runners participating in the Red Rocks "Run the Rocks" event from 9:30AM-2PM on Saturday, October 13th, and will be helping the Denver Botanic Gardens at their "Glow at the Gardens" event from 5-10PM on Wednesday, October 17th.   More details will be coming out on the October events soon.

     The details for our two September events are given below.  See you soon!

 SEPTEMBER EVENTS:


"Beautiful Junk Sale" benefiting JeffCo Action Center, Sat. Sept. 29, 7:45AM-12PM, 6 volunteers are needed to help during the sale.  What is this you say??  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.  We've helped before at the sale portion & enjoyed it.  Last time we were cashiers but that was a little slower so I requested that we help in the sales portion again this time which our volunteers enjoyed more. This event normally brings in more than $50,000 to support families in need through the Action Center's services.


ReStore Donation for Habitat for Humanity, Sun. Sept. 30, 4-10PM, 6 Volunteers are needed.  Habitat for Humanity is having a special event at the Colorado Convention Center.  They are receiving a donation from a large retail convention that will generate over $400,000 in Habitat ReStore sales to help them fund homeownership and & home repair programs.  We helped them at the convention center for a similar experience a few years ago.  They are so happy to have SVGD volunteers again that they are going to note us as a "Habitat Sponsor" which should greatly help our SVGD organization.  We will be working with the Habitat staff to organize the donations onto pallets for distribution to their ReStores.  They will provide training prior to the beginning of the event.  We will each receive a free parking voucher, a Habitat Tshirt and will be given a dinner break.  Volunteers will receive snacks & water but are encouraged to bring their own sack dinner if they wish.  They also ask that you bring a sense of humor, flexibility, patience and be prepared to multi-task!  There will be some standing and lifting.  This is a fun, worthwhile, event for which they really need us.  Please come help if you wish to help a fantastic cause & know that you really made a difference!!
