Energy Acuity had the privilege of serving at the Denver Children’s Home (DCH) in Denver, CO. If you aren’t familiar with DCH, they’re an incredible organization that helps educate and house abused, neglected and traumatized children and their families. We wanted to do something special for the kids so we shut down our computers, put our chef hats on 👩🍳👨🍳 and spent the day hosting a taco party! 🌮🎉
“Working with Denver Children’s Home is so much fun for Energy Acuity!” says Head of Philanthropy, Bailey Johnson. “Each student is excited and grateful for this simple act of offering lunch. Each time we work with DCH we are welcomed with kindness and hospitality, despite the immense hardship many of these students have experienced. I asked one of the students what was her favorite thing we brought, and she replied, “the respect you all give us.” Working with DCH just makes me happy!”
This is now the 6th year that Energy Acuity has volunteered at the Denver Children’s Home. DCH was originally chosen by Energy Acuity’s CEO, Brian Graff, for EA’s charitable outreach in 2013. After a few visits, it was clear that this partnership was here to stay!
“Seeing the kids leave the cafeteria with smiles on their faces is more than enough to keep us coming back!”, adds Manager of Research Operations, Ed Socia.
Here at Energy Acuity, we are committed to the environment as well as the community we call home. If you’re in the greater Denver area and looking to volunteer and/or support an incredible local organization, see how you can help today!
