During National Volunteer Week 2022, Mile High United Way was pleased to recognize five outstanding volunteers. These five individuals were nominated by staff from the Mile High United Way programs with which they volunteer. Each one exemplifies the lasting impact an individual can have when they lend their time, passion and expertise.
- Andrea Guerrero, United for Business: Andrea recently joined the United for Business volunteer team as a graphic designer. Her expertise in design for business logos, marketing flyers, business cards and other essential assets has been invaluable for our UFB clients.
- Brooke Elliott, 2-1-1 Help Center: Brooke has made more than 250 outbound calls to previous 2-1-1 callers since she started volunteering in January. She also has provided additional assistance for clients requiring extra support.
- Eileen Robinson, Bridging the Gap
- Jesse Esparza, Personal Investment Enterprise (PIE): Jesse meets with every PIE participant working toward saving for their business. He also individually reviews business plans and provides additional coaching. Recently Jesse helped streamline the workflow processes between Mile High United Way and PIE partner Boulder County.
- Nancy Diaz, Tax Help Colorado: Since January, Nancy has volunteered more than 225 hours with Tax Help Colorado in Lamar. She was the only IRS-certified tax preparer in that region of Colorado this year, helping people through the entire tax process. Additionally, she assisted as a translator for other Tax Help Colorado staff and volunteers.
We are so grateful for every one of our volunteers and the ways in which they contribute and further Mile High United Way’s mission to unite people, ideas, and resources to advance the common good while creating opportunities for all.
A special thank you to BAND-IT™, FirstBank, Southwest Airlines and Filsinger Energy Partners for their sponsorship of volunteerism and National Volunteer Week.
