  • Regular Volunteers needed at Lowry Elementary School’s Vegetable Garden
    • Last year, the Victory Garden produced over 500 pounds of food to feed our community. During the school year, every LES student is involved in planting, maintaining, and harvesting the garden, learning valuable lessons about how to grow plants and where food comes from. May-August, 5-15 volunteers are needed one morning per week to help weed, control insect pests, and maintain the garden.
  • Denver General Hospital Newborns in Need  – first and third Wednesdays of each month 
  • Thursday, May 25, 1 – 4 p.m.Silver Ropes Volunteer Group Food Bank of the Rockies Day
    • Join us at the Food Bank of the Rockies warehouse to help feed families in need.  Last month, Our team of 13 was able to pack 222 thirty-pound boxes of apples, and with more help, we can make an even bigger impact. As a volunteer, you will help by packing food boxes and sorting perishable and non-perishable food items for those who require them. Your hard work and dedication will ensure everyone can access the basic necessities. The work will be at the main warehouse. Sign up today!  We want to thank last month’s volunteers: Jerry Mahan, Jamie Blackstone, Barb and Mark DeSarro, Carol and Rick Dietz, Michael Plous, Susan Robinson, Karolyn Snow, Dwight, and Becky Willis, and Kathy and Denny Head.
