August 3 was a busy day around FBR. In the morning we greeted FOX 31 at Rudy Recreation Center for a visit from Papa John of Papa John’s Pizza. John donated pizza for over 150 kids and handed out gift cards for their families. A few hours later we were graced by a visit from Governor Bill Ritter & Lt. Governor Barbara O’Brien. The Governor wanted to promote volunteerism in Denver and chose FBR as a charity where volunteers are so greatly valued and needed. While here, Governor Ritter, Lt. Governor O’Brien and Papa John packed boxes for 2 local food pantries and spoke to staff, volunteers and media about volunteerism and the great need in our state.
It was a pleasure meeting these individuals and hosting them for the morning’s events. If you’re interested in volunteering at FBR, please contact Olive at 303.371.9250.
