Help Hungry Kids with Project Helping
Project Helping – As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this awesome event! REGISTER HERE: http://bit.ly/2BBkdrg The mission of Food For Thought is the elimination of weekend hunger in Denver’s Title 1 elementary schools. Each PowerSack has 9-13 items, enough to feed a family of four 2 meals over the weekend. FFT targets schools where 90% or more of the students are eligible for free and reduced lunch programs (income of a family of four is less than $29K/year to qualify). By providing a Powersack to each child in the school each week, they work to assure that no child goes hungry over the weekend. WHAT WILL WE BE DOING? Join us in assisting Food for Thought at Greenwood Elementary School. We will pack PowerSacks for families to take home for the weekend. Volunteers may help set up assembly lines, pack bags and deliver to the classrooms. FAQs Why volunteer? Be part of something fun, engaging and impactful. As a volunteer you’ll be supporting your community and improving your own health. Earn tons of good karma and do something impactful. Trust us, your friends will be jealous! Speaking of friends, bring them along! Volunteering with friends and family makes the day even more memorable. And, of course, the chance to change the world. Who doesn’t want that?? Does this event require special skills? This is a low-impact/physical area, though it does require standing for the full shift. And we consider a willingness to help others a very special skill, but you’re reading this, so you already have that one! Are there age requirements for volunteering? This is a great opportunity for volunteers who are at least 12 years old. ALL THE DETAILS: Where to meet and park? What to wear and bring? What is the agenda for the day? You can see all of the details by following this link: https://projecthelping.org/volunteer-food-for-thought/. We’ll also send a reminder email and text before the event! To make sure you get the emails, please add Project Helping (firstname.lastname@example.org) to your contacts. More Questions? Email Project Helping at email@example.com or call 303-551-0624

Uncanny Opening Reception
Walker Fine Art Gallery Contemporary Art Denver – UNCANNY Featuring:Carol Coates, Mark Penner-Howell, Bryan Leister, Roland Bernier, Malcolm Easton, Angela Piehl Opening: Friday, January 19, 2018, 5-9 pm On view through: Saturday, March 10, 2018 This eclectic group of artists kicks off our 2018 exhibition calendar with work that is surprisingly strange, quirky, and mysterious. Showcasing work in a wide array of mediums that will expectantly make you feel a bit apprehensive, these artists aim to engage the viewer through elements of absurdity, to consider how our perceptions are influenced by what we see. By juxtaposing realism with impracticality, this work may come across as a bit indecipherable, but is nonetheless intelligible.
