Join us at the Hub @ 12:30p for cocoa and to carpool to the starting location.

Temps should be in the 40s at volunteer time, so dress appropriately. Please bring water or pick some up (for $1) at the Hub before the event.

You can find the Groundwork Denver waiver, here:

If you don't bring a signed copy or you will have to sign one when you arrive.

Lastly, Groundwork Denver has a policy against wearing political or religious messaging on apparel. We typically seek opportunities where explicitly secular garb will be welcome. But--as we will be representing their organization to the public--please respect the wishes of our hosts this time and keep it non-partisan.



"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The 3rd Monday of January marks the day Americans celebrate the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In his honor, the day has been marked a national Day of Service.

Join fellow secular volunteers in a local community service activity on Monday, January 20th, to continue Dr. King's legacy of service.

We will be volunteering with the local organization Groundwork Denver.

Volunteers will partner up in groups of 2 or 3 and will knock on about 40 doors assigned to us. At each home, we'll offer to change out the front porch light bulb to a compact fluorescent bulb, provide information about reducing energy use, and sign people up for free recycling, energy audits, and street trees. It's simple and makes a huge difference for people and the planet.
