October 7th was a beautiful fall day in Colorado, which also represented a wonderful opportunity for neighbors and volunteers to gather together for a clean-up day in the West Colfax neighborhood, through Extreme Community Makeover. 90 volunteers from Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Cuningham Group, God’s Grace Community Church, Harvest Bible Chapel, Human Services Education Organization, and WeCAN worked together to complete 1 yard clean-up project, 2 community garden clean-up projects, while also cleaning 6 alleys in the neighborhood. Thank you to everyone who participated and made an impact in helping to get a few more projects finished before the winter!
