Our goal for our 2016 Day of Service was to shatter last year’s volunteer record of 2,732 participants. We are pleased to share that 3,643 employees, family members and community members across Colorado came together on Sept. 10 to join in our sixth annual Day of Service.
Watch the video for highlights and to see the impact our volunteers made.
Xcel Energy employee and Boulder native Baird McKevitt shares his passion for work, play and community service. He also serves as president of the nonprofit Attention Homes in Boulder.
At the fifth annual Day of Service in Colorado on Sept. 12, over 2,700 Xcel Energy employees, their family members and friends, and Xcel Energy customers gave more than 8,100 volunteer hours at nearly 60 nonprofits. In a new development, volunteers took part in a social media contest to help their favorite nonprofits have a chance to win one of six grants (totaling $20,000) from the Xcel Energy Foundation.
