What a month of change for some of our Clubs in Denver and our Gates Camp! Thank you Gensler, DPR Construction, Major League Baseball, the Colorado Rockies, Suncor and Interior Architects for taking on various renovation projects across BGCMD locations so that we could have improved spaces for our Club kids to work and play!
Gensler- Education Room renovation at Cope Boys & Girls Club
Another renovation in the books for the Gensler team! This year, Gensler worked with local community partners to overhaul our Cope Club’s Education Room. The space was transformed into a cozy and calm area for members to read and do homework. Each year, we are stunned by the creativity and commitment of this group!
DPR Construction- Art Room renovation at Owen Boys & Girls Club
A big thanks for DPR Construction for giving the Owen Boys & Girl Club Art Room a fresh new look! Volunteers spent the week painting, replacing old tile, installing a new sink and countertop and much more. The new space is so bright and clean, ready for our kids to dive into creative back-to-school projects. Thank you, DPR!
MLB and Colorado Rockies- STEM and Tech Lab at Owen Boys & Girls Club
The Owen Club was awarded a $50,000 STEM grant all thanks to Major League Baseball and the Colorado Rockies. Volunteers assisted in the renovation of the space in early August and Club members now have access to brand new computers, a 3D printer, and a laser cutter, just to name a few! A huge thank you for this opportunity and the ongoing partnership with MLB and the Rockies.
Suncor Energy- Gates Camp renovation
On Saturday, over 30 Suncor Energy employees made the annual trek up to Gates Camp for a full day of volunteering. The group rebuilt the second portion of the main lodge’s front deck, chopped wood, constructed a greenhouse, cleared out old forest debris and more. We are grateful every year for Suncor’s manpower to help out at Gates Camp, these projects simply wouldn’t get done without the skills and hard work of this group!
Interior Architects- Art Room renovation at Broncos Boys & Girls Club
We were thrilled to form a new partnership this summer with Interior Architects (IA). They recently focused their efforts on the Broncos’ Education Room. Volunteers provided new storage solutions and gave the room a new theme: FOOTBALL! We’re so appreciative of the early mornings that these folks dedicated to this project.
