Denver Community Credit Union Participates in Denver Community Gives Day Oct. 8

Denver, Colo. – All Denver Community Credit Union staff will volunteer at six Denver service project locations on #DenverCommunityGives Day, Monday October 8th.   Volunteer projects will support Metro Caring’s anti-hunger programs and Volunteers of America Colorado’s underserved clients, which include at risk children, women, seniors, and homeless community members.

On #DenverCommunityGives Day, credit union staff will paint ten emergency shelter rooms for families in crisis, sort and organize food bank donations, serve meals to children and homeless community members, and do maintenance work to spruce up senior housing and preschool facilities, among other projects.  #DenverCommunityGives Day aligns with Denver Community Credit Union’s vision of “Advancing financial opportunity” by making a difference in the lives of our community members.

Denver Community employees have collectively volunteered over 610 hours in 2018 so far.  This full day of volunteering and recognizing community service further encourages Denver Community staff to remain involved in the communities we serve year-round.  In 2017, 86 Denver Community staff volunteered a combined 430 hours on #DenverCommunityGives Day, which was an estimated $10,380 in cost savings for Volunteers of America Colorado.
