CB DEN: Flourish at Pferdesteller Park
About this Event
Our theme for June is FLOURISH. We have all been closed in for months, and it’s time to take to the outdoors with a healthy dose of intention to start rebuilding ourselves and our communities. Join us all month for opportunities to serve and support with this theme in mind.
We’re back to volunteering in person this month, with all the health and safety precautions necessary. On Saturday, June 13th, help our friends at Denver Parks with an opportunity to get outside, improve your local park, meet fellow park lovers, and have a great time. It’s what our Service Made Social mission is all about.
Due to social distancing measures, we are limiting this project to 10 volunteers maximum, but will have a waitlist as well.
Here’s what to expect:
Let’s Serve Together (9:30 AM – 12:30 PM)
You’ll get to help with their much needed beautification project by helping to spread mulch around the trees there.
Because of the circumstances, we will not be gathering afterward for a social like we usually do. However, you should feel free to stick around and chat (from a body’s length away) with your fellow volunteers when we finish!
We handle all the planning and supplies. For you it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Donate to reserve your spot
- Stay tuned during the week of the event for an email with all the details about the day-of
- Show up alone, or invite friends to register. Either way, you’ll have a blast!
What does Socially Distant Volunteering look like? Here are 5 rules for ensuring a Covid-resistant service experience all Summer-long.
1. Stay Six Feet Apart: We love greeting you with handshakes and hugs, but we’ll be keeping an appropriate distance at all times. We will ensure volunteers remain separated with all our tasks, and during our welcome and wrap-up gatherings.
2. Cover Yo’ Face: Masks are required for every volunteer. No exceptions. Good news is, it helps protect you from the sun, too.
3. B.Y.O.-Supplies: As much as we want to share snacks, water and sunscreen, we ask that you pack your own and resist the friendly urge to share with others.
4. Germ-Free For All: We’ll provide hand sanitizer at every project, and we will sanitize all tools and supplies before and after each project. If you’re still nervous about germs, we’ll provide gloves for your convenience.
5. Common Sense is The Best Hope: Please do not show up if you experience any symptoms or know that you have been exposed within 2 weeks (in case we still need to remind you of that…) At the end of the day, your responsible actions will keep everyone else safe!

Why Am I Donating to Volunteer?
The hard truth is that free events see up to a 50% dropout rate. With limited spots on projects we want to ensure that attendees who are committed to volunteering have a spot and that our nonprofit partners are served well.
Your donation goes to good use; directly rolling into Community Bucket programming in your city, while also supporting the missions of our local nonprofit partners.
We want our events to be accessible to everyone, so we’ll work with you if you are unable to donate and still want to attend. Just email Jesse Grossman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
