September 9, 2019
DENVER (CBS4) – Thousands of Coloradans volunteered at projects across the state for Xcel Energy’s 9th annual Day of Service. They came together for 83 nonprofit projects which benefit countless people.
“We have close to 4,000 people out right at this exact point in time, giving back to their communities, doing a variety of projects,” said Alice Jackson, President of Xcel Energy – Colorado.
Alice joined volunteers at the Mile High United Way to make blankets which will go to patients at Denver Health.
“It is truly amazing. Not only our employees, but people in the community and then the partnership with CBS4 to put this all together is really tremendous,” she said.
“It just makes a world of difference, it changes their whole outlook on the hospital,” said Mandy Scott, a Child Life Specialist for Denver Health Pediatrics.
