Thank you to our corporate partners – Comcast, Allstate, Colorado Insurance, Yale Alumni Association, ViewHouse – for lending helping hands and helping hearts at our Clubs this past month!
Comcast Cares Day
For over eight years, Boys & Girls Clubs has been a grateful partner in Comcast’s company-wide day of service, in addition to their annual investment in My.Future digital literacy program for our Club kids. This year, nearly 50 Comcast employees volunteered their time sprucing up our Jeffco and Broncos Boys & Girls Clubs during Comcast Cares Day on Saturday, May 4th.
Volunteers assisted with large landscaping projects at both sites, helping to beautify our buildings. Afterwards, the Broncos Club hosted a fitness carnival and barbeque for Club families. We couldn’t have done all of this without the help of so many generous volunteers. A huge shout out to the Comcast team and BGCMD Board Member Mike Spaulding for spending their Saturday helping out at our Clubs!
Allstate Day of Service
Allstate agents showed their commitment to making change in the community and lending a helping hand during the Third Annual Allstate Day of Service with Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver. Over 50 agents and volunteers spent their Saturday morning scrubbing and beautifying the Suncor and Cope Boys & Girls Clubs.
Volunteers transformed many areas of the Clubs that needed a lot of love by painting, cleaning, landscaping and even teaching some of our Club members new skills! This annual day of service, which now has expanded across multiple Boys & Girls Clubs in various states, makes a huge impact not only with the hard work of the volunteers but also a grant that helps fund the programs we run in our Clubs every day. Thank you, Allstate!
State Education Day
On April 27, BGCMD hosted State Education Day at the Jefferson County Boys & Girls Club. State Education Day is one of our largest program competitions, and we would like to give a special shout out to our two volunteer groups, Yale Alumni Association and Colorado Insurance , for all their help making the event a huge win for our Club members.
At the competition, 138 youth from all over Colorado split into teams that competed in “The Ultimate Game” — a life-size board game involving projects in areas of math, science, language arts and social studies. When not completing one of these four projects, teams worked together to answer a variety of trivia questions in those same academic areas. Club members had a blast, and it was incredible to see so many members, staff and volunteers working together to promote academics in our Clubs and programs.
An extra special shout out to ViewHouse for providing all the food for those who volunteered and participated in the event.
State Education Day would not have been nearly as successful without ALL of your help. THANK YOU Yale Alumni Association, Colorado Insurance and ViewHouse!
