Denver Employees Volunteer Opportunities
What We Do
Past DEVO Events
- Rescue Mission Board Retreat
On March 21st 2013, ten current and former board members spent an afternoon preparing food to be served to locals benefiting from the Denver Rescue Mission.
- 9th Annual Volunteer Fair
On Thursday, April 18th 2013, DEVO held the 8th annual volunteer fair. This event, hosted in the atrium of the Webb office building, featured nearly two dozen different charitable organizations. Representatives of these worthwhile groups were on hand to explain their organizations' missions and to register new volunteers. For those of you that participated, a heartfelt "Thank you!" for setting aside part of your break or lunch hour to check out the great volunteer opportunities we had there!
- Salvation Army Food Drive Blitz
On December 8, 2012, 50 City Employees and their families spent the better part of their Saturday sorting and boxing donated food for needy Denver families to enjoy over the Holidays. Everyone who helped out that day said they had a lot of fun, too!
- BRI Paint-a-Thon
For the ninth year in a row, DEVO worked with Brothers Redevelopment, Inc. on Saturday, July 21, 2012 to paint homes for elderly and disabled Denver homeowners. 172 City Employees and their families formed DEVO teams and painted seven homes!
- Habitat For Humanity & Neighborhood Partners
DEVO held their first event on June 26, 2004. Forty seven city employees volunteered over 300 hours to Habitat for Humanity and Neighborhood Partners at three building sites in northeast Denver - the 25th Anniversary House, the Women's Build House and a Neighborhood Partners’ house.
- Trees for Granby
Remember the armored bulldozer and the demolition of buildings in Granby in 2004? Trees were also destroyed. Denver has donated replacement trees to Granby and the City Forester helped oversee the planting. 10 city employees volunteered and helped residents of Granby plant the trees.
- Neighborhood Partners’ Neighborhood Blitz
In September 2004, Neighborhood Partners hosted its 2nd Annual Blitz in the Park Hill Neighborhood. DEVO volunteers helped low-income families, the elderly and people with disabilities with minor house repairs, painting projects and yard work.
