Since 2003, EKS&H has organized an annual firm-wide day of service. Through this effort, employees, and their families and friends, have contributed more than 10,000 hours to a wide variety of organizations, including Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, the Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center, Denver Urban Gardens, Denver Children’s Home, Family Tree, Anchor Center for Blind Children, and Easter Seals Rocky Mountain Village.

This year’s EKS&H day of service was completed in conjunction with the local nonprofit Article4Concerts for Kids on its annual community service day. On April 26, more than 40 individuals, including five partners from EKS&H, went to Savio House, an organization dedicated to eliminating violence, crime, drug and alcohol abuse, child abuse and neglect, and other destructive behaviors in families through care, support, and education. For more than six hours, EKS&H volunteers assisted with landscape projects, including planting trees, mulching gardens, and laying a brick patio, as well as painting the exterior of one of the organization’s buildings.

“We were honored to be able to partner again this year with amazing Colorado nonprofits like Concerts for Kids and Savio House,” says EKS&H CEO Bob Hottman. “These two organizations are doing incredible work helping children and families in our community, an area that is linked directly to our core value of commitment to each other.”
