Volunteers of America Snow Buddies
Volunteers of America can help those 60 and older in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson counties with shoveling snow. We make a match between a client and a volunteer who live within two miles of each other. Then, when there is a snowfall of 2 or more inches, we ask the volunteers to shovel the sidewalk and walkway for their assigned senior within 24 hours. This program was initiated to keep seniors safe from falls on snow or ice during the winter. The program also keeps seniors from accruing city or county fines for not being able to shovel their snow from the sidewalks. - See more at: http://www.voacolorado.org/Volunteer
Every year, nearly 1,000 volunteers get their hands dirty to help over 50 nonprofits improve their facilities. By working together on projects such as landscaping, roofing, painting, carpeting and cleaning, our volunteers make a huge difference for our beneficiaries. Community Day allows these nonprofits to spend their budgets on critical areas like programs and staff to help the children and families they serve.
2014’s Community Day was a huge success, raising $511,727.90 in labor, supplies and monetary donations. Concerts For Kids’ volunteers generated a combined 6,000 hours over the course of a single, six-hour day.

March - September
Between March and September each year, Brothers Redevelopment works alongside event sponsors and more than 2,000 caring volunteers to paint the homes of income-qualified senior and disabled homeowners in cities across the Front Range -- ALL FREE OF CHARGE.
These days, the average cost to paint a home can surpass $5,000 — a huge expense for a senior/disabled homeowners living with financial and/or physical limitations. Given that the services is offered AT NO COST to the homeowner, they can devote their limited and fixed-incomes to cover other important costs, such as medication, groceries and utility bills.
The event appeals to volunteers of all ages, professions and persuasions. Participating volunteer teams represent nearly every aspect of our communities: corporations, churches, neighborhood and civic associations and more.
