Are you looking for ways to make a difference in Colorado Springs? There are plenty of opportunities to get involved and help the community. From collecting food for the City Harvest program to joining one of the fifty boards, commissions and committees, you can make a real impact. You can also join CASA through a friend who introduced you to the organization through the Light of Hope event in 2003. The City Harvest food program collects donated perishable and non-perishable food, which is then distributed to more than 70 pantries and community food banks serving low-income families and homeless people throughout the Denver metro area. This is an excellent way to help those in need and make a difference in your community.
You can also help families escape homelessness at the reception of the Volunteers of America family motel. The support of the office's volunteers makes it possible for more than 50 Volunteers of America programs to empower more than 200,000 people each year in Colorado. This is an amazing way to give back and make a lasting impact on those who need it most. If you're looking for a way to get involved, consider joining one of nearly fifty boards, commissions and committees to help make the city of Colorado Springs a better place to live, work and play. This project brings together volunteers, community members, and leaders from across the region (vision councils) to collect and evaluate data and set goals (called “priority areas”) in several categories.
This is an excellent way to get involved in your local government and help shape the future of your city. No matter what kind of service project you choose to participate in, you can make a difference in Colorado Springs. So don't wait - get involved today!.
