SVGD Volunteers:   
        We still need 3 people to help this Sunday morning at the Fight For Air Climb benefiting the American Lung Assn.  We will be in charge of the registration table.  The event is inside and there is free parking.  Please sign up soon if you can help as they really need 6 people at the registration table & I don't want to let them down.
        I just put the "Beautiful Junk Sale" event on the web site so you can now sign up for that.  It will be on Sat. March 16th.  This is a unique and fun event!
       I could use a few more SVGD Event Captains if you are interested.  I provide training and you co-Captain before doing it yourself so you can see how we do it.  I still find and confirm the event.  The Event Captain's job isn't hard, is a lot of fun, but I do need people to lead some of the events as I can't lead them all myself.  Please email me if you're interested in getting more information.  I email out a list of upcoming events to the Event Captains and they select ones they would like to lead that meet their schedules.
       Thanks to all of you for helping our Denver Metro Community at these upcoming events!

UPCOMING MARCH EVENTS:

2019 Fight for Air Stair Climb benefiting the American Lung Assn., Sun. March 3rd,  6:45AM til 1PM (oftentimes we get done by 10:30AM but they do go til 1PM so that's a possibility.)  (WE STILL NEED 3 VOLUNTEERS FOR THIS SUNDAY'S EVENT)6 total Volunteers will be assisting to help at the registration table.  They will have free parking for our volunteers!  This fun and unique event is a 56-floor climb (I'm out of breath just thinking about it!) at Denver's tallest building in Downtown Denver.  They are expecting over 2,400 participants this year!  We have helped them for several years.  This event makes a huge difference in helping the American Lung Association assist those who have lung disease.  

"Beautiful Junk Sale" benefiting JeffCo Action Center, Sat. March 16, 7:45AM-Noon, 6 volunteers are needed.  We are going to help with the sales portion where we will be helping to stock and stage the merchandise as well as assist buyers.  This event is back by request from previous volunteers who had such a great time! 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.  This event normally brings in more than $40,000 to support families in need through the Action Center's services. 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.  We help them with their Clothing & Food donations as well as their Thanksgiving food donations to needy families.  This is such a worthy non profit!! 


FUTURE EVENTS:
     The following events are going to be upcoming but I don't have the Event Captains nor 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.
