Volunteer Event at Urban Peak 2.23.16

Project Helping Volunteer Event at Urban Peak

We love volunteering at Urban Peak! Today was no different. Every volunteer event we host at Urban Peak is a lot of fun and also incredibly impactful.

WHAT DID WE DO?

We visit Urban Peak twice a month to serve breakfast to their youth. Urban Peak provides amazing services to homeless youth in Denver and we are proud to help out by providing a hot, healthy breakfast.

We provide the food for the meal and our amazing volunteers help to prepare the meal and serve it. Today we made pancakes, scrambled eggs, and tater tots. We also had an amazing contribution from Snooze who donated food as well. Snooze donated pancakes, hashbrowns and breakfast tacos. Very excited youth had a lot of amazing food to choose from.

WHO DID IT?

The kitchen at Urban Peak is only big enough for 6-7 people. Today we had 7 amazing volunteers who made serving breakfast to 100 people look easy. We also had a lot of fun doing it! It is always amazing to us to see how excited people can be to volunteer at 7:30 in the morning. You have to get up pretty early to get ready, beat traffic and be in the heart of downtown Denver by 7:30 am.

We are incredibly grateful for the help. More importantly, the youth of Urban Peak are grateful!

THE IMPACT

There is not much that is more impactful than providing a hot, healthy meal to someone to isn’t sure where their next meal will come from. Not only do we provide a meal to the youth of Urban Peak, we provide them hope.

Of course, there is a tremendous impact on the youth of Urban Peak but there is also an impact being made on the volunteers. When you volunteer, you take advantage of the amazing health benefits that helping others provides. Volunteering is one of the best things you can do for your own health. There are physical wellness benefits, but more impactful and important are the mental wellness benefits of volunteering.
