Santa claus relax

The definition of upcycling is to reuse discarded objects or materials to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original.  Revampt Goods in Cherry Creek shows you ways you can upcycle your time this holiday by receiving a better return for your time in giving back to the community.  Your ‘discarded time’ will actually be exchanged in becoming more valuable with the helping of others.  Check out our ideas and see for yourself!

Food Bank

Food Bank of the Rockies is an excellent way to get in the spirit of giving.  Volunteers help with pulling inventory and building orders, helping in the community kitchen, or putting together snacks for after school programs.  Volunteers must be over the age of 14, but provides a great opportunity for family volunteering if you have older children!

Shelters

Volunteer at a local shelter this season.  Whether it’s serving in the soup kitchen or changing sheets, you’ll be giving back to the community in a way that will give back to you more than you imagine!  Denver Homeless Connection at denverhomelessconnection.com is a resource for the city’s homeless shelters.  You can choose a shelter; men’s, women’s, or family shelter to give back to the community touching lives at the same time!

Ronald McDonald House of Charities

With a home located in Denver and Aurora, this non profit is easily accessible to most Denverites.  Ronald McDonald House has offered a home away from home to families needing to be near their seriously ill children while being treated at local hospitals.  Volunteers are needed to provide meals, raise funds, and much more!

Senior Centers

What better way to celebrate the season of giving than giving joy to someone else?  This avenue would be perfect for families with young children.  Senior’s love children.  Make cards beforehand and pass them out, or volunteer to read a Christmas story one evening.  Your presence alone would be enough to brighten their day.
