Six years ago, the Junior League of Denver held its first JLD L.U.V.S. day of service. Leaders United in Volunteer Service was created as a way for our members to come together to tackle a variety of projects for our nonprofit partners in one day. JLD has been told repeatedly how wonderful our members are and how much staff time we have saved our partners through these efforts.
Our sixth annual JLD L.U.V.S. day of service will be held on Saturday, September 17. This year’s theme is “Opening Doors.” We are very excited to help our community partners complete an assortment of projects!
The fifth annual JLD L.U.V.S. day of service took place on September 18, 2021, and was a complete success! To align with our expanded community impact area to disrupt the cycle of systemic poverty for women and families in Denver, the day’s theme was “Breaking the Cycle,” focused on working with partners that help families break the cycle of poverty through education, support, resources and more!
JLD members donated more than 550 volunteer hours to with 13 amazing nonprofit partners in just one day, and there were many items donated through the two donation drop-off locations. From clean-up and landscaping projects to painting and serving lunch, there was a wide variety of projects to support our community. Additionally, $12,000 was distributed in grants to our partners to provide the supplies and materials needed to execute the projects.
