With the Democratic National Convention coming to Denver in just 10 months, the staff here at the DNCC is in full swing giving back to the community. Back in the summer, the staff took a weekend day to help spread mulch around trees in City Park. In September, we took a group of kids from Colorado Uplift to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park just outside Denver for a soccer clinic with some players from Denver’s MLS team the Rapids.
This Wednesday, we headed over to the Edna Oliver Montessori Early Learning Center in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood. The DNCC staff read to the kids, played on the playground with them and a bunch of us cleaned up around the center’s grounds.
Check out our photos of the day’s events here.
Chuck Plunkett of the Denver Post has a blog post about community service event on the Post’s blog Politics West.
Members of the Democratic National Convention Committee continued a stated goal of giving back to the community on Thursday by volunteering to work with young students out cleaning up their school grounds.
The DNCC staffers joined the Edna Oliver Montessori Early Learning Center under stunning blue skies as part of the “DNCC Service Days” volunteerism effort.
