Help Big Bird Retire!

Mile High Youth Corps needs $20,000 to buy a new van and send our old friend Big Bird in to retirement.

Donate today at:  https://beanstalkfoundation.org/fundraiser/mhyc-new-van-2016 

All the great work Mile High Youth Corps does in the community relies on vans to take our Corpsmembers to job sites. Big Bird (as he was affectionately named by Corpsmembers) is ready to retire and drive off into the sunset, but someone needs to replace him.

Who will take the Corpsmembers to conserve our parks and public lands? Who will take crews and all their tools to construction sites to build homes for low-income families? Who will visit dozens of homes every week to retrofit them with energy and water saving devices? Please donate and help us spread the word to reach our $20,000 goal! For more Big Bird stories, visit us at Facebook.com/MileHighYouthCorps.
