Group Volunteer Projects
We volunteer throughout the year at local nonprofits. This has included packing school supplies for Crayons to Calculators, participating in a home build at Habitat for Humanity in Longmont, conversing one-on-one with local immigrants through Intercambio, and serving lunch at the OUR Center. The goal is to help out a worthy nonprofit, and have some fun along the way!
