Volunteers pitch in, clean up
Denver CO Rocky Mountain News 1Aug99 C8
By Hector Gutierrez: Denver Rocky Mountain News Staff Writer

60 volunteers from the Lakewood Ward were among hundreds of volunteers participating in Colorado Cares Day, a day of service planned near the anniversary of Colorado's acceptance into the United States. The LDS Church volunteers fixed up the Family Tree battered women's shelter, painting, doing yard work and cleaning the building.

The ward moved its annual service day from July 24th to July 31st to participate in the Colorado Cares day. "We all belong to the community, and we all contribute, and this is a day to contribute in a positive way," said ward activities chair Jennifer Anderson.

Other volunteers included Colorado Governor Bill Owens and his family, and hundreds of other Coloradans.
