LOCAL COMMUNITY LOVE
TURKEY ROUND UP
We’re partial to burgers, but around the holidays everyone’s talking turkey. Each year the Denver Rescue Mission rounds up thousands of turkeys for nonprofit organizations, homes in need, and to help provide a traditional Thanksgiving meal for the homeless. Last year we raised more than $4,300 to donate 308 turkeys. With your help, we’ll Smash those numbers this year! Find out how to get involved at the Denver Rescue Mission.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Our team committed more than 250 volunteer hours in 2014 to work with Food For Thought, whose mission is to end hunger for local children. Once a month during the past school year, groups from Smashburger gathered to pack 900 power snacks, which were delivered to 4 different Colorado elementary schools. Learn more about the amazing work being done by the great folks at Food For Thought.
Boys & Girls Club
The Boys & Girls Club focuses on giving youth a safe place where they can learn and develop into caring, responsible young adults. Last year we held our first annual all-company day of service in partnership with the Boys & Girls Club and created several field and art activities for the kids’ field day.
Smashburger also partnered with the charity for a holiday gift drive to help local youth celebrate the holiday season. With the aid of a wish list from the kids, our volunteers raised $2,500 and went on a shopping bonanza for gifts. Stay up to date with what’s happening at The Boys & Girls Club.
RMCCF Golf Tournament
The Rocky Mountain Childhood Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization that assists families who are dealing with the unexpected, and at time overwhelming, emotional and financial stresses of childhood cancers. Smashburger competes in the RMCCF’s annual golf tournament to raise funds to ease the financial burdens felt by impacted families who are fighting their child’s illness.
