A Look Back at Colony Service Month
For the past month, Colony American employees have been volunteering throughout the community, supporting Colony Cares Service Month. From our hard work, 10 dogs have been cared for, 26,352 meals were packed to feed 72 children for a year, 3 miles were walked in the name of breast cancer, countless life-saving medical supplies were sorted, Olympic athletes were cheered for, and superhero costumes were worn.
Project Cure is the “largest provider of donated medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world.” Our volunteers took part in delivering health by sorting medical supplies for the organization.
We volunteered twice with Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary, a non-profit organization committed to senior animal care, promotion and education. Spending time walking, feeding, grooming, and showing some love to these furry friends were some of the volunteering duties. Not a bad day’s work!
Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona (SDSA) is a group dedicated to enriching the lives of children with Down Syndrome and providing support to their families. CAH employee, Leah, volunteers every year at the Sharing Down Syndrome Walk fundraiser. She and her family dress as Super Heroes to take pictures with the kids and cheer on their teams!
Our Denver team spent their morning volunteering with Race for the Cure, a race series all over the country that provides educational and fundraising for breast cancer. Since the beginning over $2 billion has been invested to help stop breast cancer.
Special Olympics, the world’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities, was in Arizona, and our Colony American employees weren’t going to miss a chance to volunteer! We partook in score-keeping, officiating games, presenting medals, and offering any other assistance as needed.
Our rock star Colony employees helped pack lunches at Feed My Starving Children. They packed 122 boxes, with equals to 26,352 meals that will feed 72 kids for a year!
In addition, we received over 60 stories from you, our residents, outlining your volunteer experiences. We’re happy to be part of a community that gives back. #ColonyCares
