WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?

Project Helping volunteers are needed to assist with painting and cleaning that will bring Baby Haven up to meet the Colorado Shines rating standard for child care centers. This project piggybacks on the hard work Project Helping volunteers did last year, resulting in the Baby Haven earning a high-quality rating! As space is limited, make sure to register before participating in this awesome event!
