Boulder Housing Partners (BHP) would like to thank all the volunteers who donated their time, fantastic attitudes, and energy to help beautify Red Oak Park during the September 11, 2015 Foothills United Way Day of Caring.
The Foothills United Way Day of Caring is the largest single-day volunteer event in Boulder and Broomfield counties. This event is an opportunity to connect local volunteers with organizations that need their support. The 2015 event saw an increase in participants, drawing nearly 1,000 volunteers to 41 organizations throughout the two counties. Over the years, BHP has participated as an organizer of projects and volunteer teams.
For this year's event, BHP hosted a volunteer project at Red Oak Park (ROP). We were thrilled to receive the help of 15 volunteers from IBM and Boulder Newcomers Club. The project involved spreading mulch, pulling weeds, and picking up trash around this award-winning family housing community. The volunteers worked very hard to complete the project and see results, which were very impressive! After the fun at ROP, the team headed to a celebration picnic hosted by the United Way at Gateway Park.
It was many of the volunteers' first time visiting an affordable housing site. They were very impressed with ROP’s beauty, quality and community. Many said “I would love to live here.”
This project was coordinated and supported by BHP staff, without whom this day would not have been possible. Thank you specifically to Paul Graham (Maintenance Technician) and Nick Phillips (Resident Services Program Manager).
