Are you looking for a great way to get more involved in the community, expand your network and make a difference? Then you need to check out Excelsior’s new community outreach program, the Impact Circle. This program is designed to meet the needs of Excelsior youth and families while providing valuable networking opportunities and entertaining social events for members.
Still, this isn’t your average group of community volunteers. This is a network of like-minded people who are passionate about positively impacting the community AND get excited about some friendly competition. Impact Circle members will join teams and actually compete to make the most impact in the lives of our youth and families. We could have just simply created a program where people join forces to meet specified needs, but what’s the fun in that?
How it works:
Upon joining, team captains will introduce you to your team members and together you will identify projects you want to work on. Projects may include: hosting a drive or fundraiser to collect in-kind items or participating in a “done-in-a-day” project like painting a classroom. After you’re completed the project, the value of your team’s project will be tallied. Totals for each team will be calculated quarterly and winners will be announced at each quarterly networking event!
Why you want to get involved:
Not only will you be able to expand your network by making real connections with great people, but you will be directly impacting the lives of youth and families that would otherwise be lost, alone and afraid. Your team captain will regularly update you with details about the youth and families you’ve helped with recent projects. You have the capacity to change a family’s life by giving them hope and possibility – whether it’s brightening their holiday season by providing a few small gifts that they otherwise couldn’t afford, or revamping a child’s bedroom with a fresh coat of paint – a little help goes a long way.
We cannot wait to launch this great new program on Wednesday September 16, 2015 at Mile High Station! Keeping with the competitive nature of the program, the Excelsior Games will feature tailgating games like corn hole, ladder golf, washers and even a beer pong tournament! So don’t miss this exciting event as we “tailgate with impact” to launch this great program and start making an impact!
