CB DEN: Garden Cleanup at AATPC
Our theme for July is Enliven. This month, we will focus our attention on supporting individuals who benefit from a little cheer. Throughout July, we will enliven those in need and come together with a few small in-person and virtual projects.
Due to social distancing measures, we are limiting this project to 10 volunteers maximum but we will also have a waitlist. Supplies like clean gloves will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own. Additional tools will also be provided and sanitized for you to use.
We recognize there are some inherent risks but we are doing our best to accommodate while still promoting active volunteerism. You know your situation better than anyone and we encourage you to join us or hold-off on in-person events based on your level of comfort.
About Our Project with AATPC (8:30 – 10:30 AM):
On Saturday, July 11th, we will head to AATPC (located in Arvada), an amazing organization providing mental health counseling and other services using the power of animals! Opt outside with us, improve AATPC’s on-site gardens, meet new people, and have a great time (at a distance). It’s what our Service Made Social mission is all about.
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 what to expect the day-of
- Show up alone, or invite friends to register. Either way, you’ll have a blast!
5 Safety Rules:
What does Socially Distant Volunteering look like? Here are five rules for ensuring COVID-resistant service experiences 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. The 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 Helps Stop The Spread: 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 email@example.com.
