Make A Difference Day: Denver


Make A Difference Day is held on the fourth Saturday in October every year and encourages the nation to come together for one day and participate in service projects that will directly affect their community in a positive manner. Projects were completed all over the country that truly made a difference in their community!

Mile High Youth Corps spent the day working on Fairview Elementary School, a school located in the neighborhood of several of our locations. Special thanks to the principal, Norma Giron for letting us work with her on such a special project! Listen to the speech she gave to the over 120 VOLUNTEERS!!!

The MHYC community joined with parents and students of the elementary school, Veronica Garcia, our friends from Ricoh-Ilkon and other community members to paint benches, clean up the playgrounds, plant trees, paint portions of the building and provide some overall maintenance to the garden. Thanks again for all you came to support!




We would like to thank all those who helped to make the day possible with their generous donations! Thanks from MHYC to John Alexander at Home Depot, Brigid McRaith for her art supplies, the Million Tree Initiative, Kim from Park People/Denver Digs, Cici’s pizza, Tagawa Gardens, Diane Wilson at Applewood Seed Co and Einstein’s Bagels for their delicious breakfast.
