Saturday, May 11th, Colorado Barricade employees volunteered at Savio for the 2018 Amp the Cause Community Day. CB staffs’ hard work provided much needed mulching, trimming, weeding and painting. Savio believes in keeping children and families together, even when they are struggling with serious problems like child abuse, mental health issues, and drug abuse. Every day Savio supports families in crisis, with their help, children and families avoid being torn apart and instead learn how to live safe, healthy and happy lives.
Amp the Cause’s Annual Community Day is a wonderful opportunity for volunteers to give back to their community and learn more about local nonprofits. Teams of volunteers go out to 50+ sites and participate in various facility improvement projects, including: landscaping, indoor and outdoor painting, general cleaning, and other facility improvement tasks.
Community Day allows nonprofits to spend their budgets on critical areas like programming and staffing to help the children and families they serve. 2017’s Community Day was a huge success, raising $1,016,509.20 in labor, supplies, and monetary donations. Amp the Cause’s volunteers generated a combined 4,074 hours over the course of a single, six-hour day. We are excited to see this year’s total!
