SVGD Volunteers:
     Happy Halloween!  I just put a new event on our SVGD web site.  We will be helping at the Denim & Diamonds Gala this month.  I have a feeling this one will fill up quickly so please sign up soon if you'd like to help.
      One of our volunteers had to cancel for this Saturday's Habitat for Humanity ReStore event in Littleton so we could really use another volunteer for this one.  If you'd like to help please sign up soon so I can get all the information to you.  Thanks for your help!

Please sign up on to this assist at thes events.


Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Sat. Nov. 2nd, 10AM-2PM, (We had a volunteer cancellation so need at least 1 more volunteer for this Saturday!) 6-10 Volunteers in total will be helping. We will be helping for the first time at the Littleton store on W. Quincy. We've helped them many times previously but this is our first time at this location.  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.

Denim & Diamonds Gala benefiting the Bridges of Hope, Sat. Nov. 16th, 4:30-8:30PM, 6 Volunteers are needed. We will be helping with check-in, registration, and a little with the live & silent auction.  Volunteers will be provided with a plated dinner (just like the $100-$850 guests) and will have a break.  Bridges of Hope partners with single mothers and their children to provide rental assistance to prevent homelessness.  The event is being held in Lakewood at an Event Center that many use for weddings & special events.  It resembles a European Vineyard with rock arches.  We will be inside with a great view of a small lake!  Cocktail attire is fine but with the "Denim & Diamonds" theme it is fine to wear jeans and a fancy shirt.  They will be having cocktails and live music also.  We helped for the first time last year and had a fantastic time!  They gave us many complements re: our great volunteers.  Our volunteers are invited to stay to dance and enjoy the event which ends around 11:30PM.

Please sign up for these events on the  web site.


     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.   
          Sun. Nov. 24th TDay Food Distribution at Jeffco Fairgrounds, 8-10:30AM          
          Thurs. Nov. 28th Thanksgiving Dinner for our SVGD members!!
          Sat. Dec.7th, afternoon, Bayaud Enterprises Holiday Party for disabled families- we'll be giving out gifts to the children of the handicapped 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!
