The Community Action Team (CAT) positively impacts local nonprofits through skills-based volunteering projects. CAT members focus on identifying ways to support the Denver Metro area through community education, project management, and collaboration with JLD’s community partners.
This 2020-2021 League year presented new challenges for the Denver area. CAT perfectly adapted to the greatest needs of the pandemic by sewing and collecting hundreds of masks to be donated to The Gathering Place, Children’s Hospital Colorado and Schmitt Elementary. The committee also supplied Little Free Libraries to The GrowHaus and installed a music library at El Sistema Colorado, demonstrating CAT’s versatility in initiatives.
Currently, CAT is partnering with International Rescue Committee (IRC) to support refugees in the community. It’s not too late to check out the Amazon wishlist set up to support refugees arriving from Afghanistan.
