On March 14, 2015 Headwaters Realty partnered with Odell Brewing Company and organized a volunteer project for the House of Neighborly Service in Loveland, CO.
The House of Neighborly Service connects low income and impoverished individuals and families to available resources in the community. They recently moved into a new space and invited all of the partner agencies that they work with on a regular basis to join them so that their clients could get all of the services they need in one location. Since the House of Neighborly Service recently moved and is still in the process of building out space for other nonprofits, they needed a lot of help cleaning.
For our project we had 31 volunteers contribute 93 hours cleaning the bathrooms, sweeping construction areas, scraping mud off the floors, mudding screw holes in the walls, mopping, cleaning the new conference room, cleaning all of the stairs, and painting! We were AMAZED by all of the work that was accomplished by these very dedicated volunteers. This project was also unique because it was our first partnership project with another company. We were very excited to be able to partner with Odell Brewing Company. By combining our resources, we were able to have a greater impact.
About Headwaters Realty’s commitment to community:
The Headwaters Realty volunteer program began in June 2014. We have two main focus areas: Education and the Environment. As a company, we organize one volunteer project per quarter that fits into one of our focus areas. We invite our past and present clients, family, friends, and community members to join us at our volunteer projects. We are committed to making our volunteering efforts an integral part of how we do business. A portion of all commissions goes toward our community engagement projects. We hire agents who also believe in this mission and each agent organizes one volunteer project per year with the local nonprofit of their choice. We believe that by volunteering and giving back to the community, we have the ability to affect change and improve where we live, work and play.
