New Volunteer Events

SVGD Volunteers:

    I've just added two new events on our web site.  We will be attending the "Yappy Hour" benefiting the Denver Dumb Friends League and will also be cashiers for the Jeffco Action Center's "Beautiful Junk Sale".  Also, I still need three people to help at The Delores Project dinner.  They really need our help as this women's safe house now has to move from one temporary location into another temporary location that doesn't even have a kitchen!!

    Thank you to all of you!   We have such a great group of volunteers!  Please register if you are available for any of these events.

Serving Dinner at the Delores Project women's safehouse, Tues. March 13,6-8:15PM  (We still need 3 volunteers for this event!6 Volunteers are needed.  We have assisted this women's safe shelter several times.  This time it will be a little different as The Delores Project is currently in a temporary shelter as they build their new facility.  They have to leave the temporary shelter two days after we assist them so really need our help as they are going through this transition.  Their new shelter doesn't even have a kitchen so we won't be able to help them again until next Fall!!   The shelter is in West Denver.  We help by preparing the already provided food and serving.  Volunteers have an opportunity to meet the residents after serving by also enjoying the meal.  This is a confidential location that is given out to the volunteers after registering due to the nature of the facility.  Both male & female volunteers are welcome to assist at this event.

Yappy Hour at Comrade Brewing benefiting the Dumb Friends League, Thurs. March 15, 6-8PM, Everyone is welcome but we do need to register how many are coming prior to the event. Please sign up by Monday, March 12th so we can let them know how many are coming. Join us at the brewery (near Iliff/Quebec) for their "Pet Me, I'm Irish" Yappy Hour.  The event will feature food trucks, giveaways and collectible pint glasses- plus a portion of all proceeds will benefit the Dumb Friends League.  Celebrate the spirit of St. Paddy's Day- come dressed in green, with your furry friend if you'd like (must be leashed, well behaved & kept in hand), and raise a pint for homeless pets.  Every once in awhile we do a social event that benefits a good cause.  I hope you'll register (they do require this) and enjoy 
the fun event while meeting other great volunteers from many organizations/companies!

"Beautiful Junk Sale" benefiting JeffCo Action Center, Sat. March 17, 8:45AM-12:45 PM, 6 volunteers are neededWe are going to be cashiers for the sale this time which should be a lot of fun.  This event is back by request from volunteers who helped them last Spring and 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!!
