Take Action Group

Volunteerism is at the heart of the Lowry community. No matter your interests, there are ongoing and special projects that can use your time and talents. The Take Action Group (TAG) identifies and promotes volunteer opportunities within the Lowry neighborhood and the greater Denver metro area. TAG works under the auspices of the Lowry Foundation.

If you know of an opportunity for volunteers, or have questions, please contact Take Action Group coordinator Debby Kaufman at debbykaufman@gmail.com

*** SPECIAL NEED ALERT ***

A message from the Lowry Backpack Project: We are short on soups, pasta, crackers, cereal, snacks and breakfast bars.  If you are able to donate to this wonderful cause please drop off your non-perishable items on Oct 19th or Oct. 20th.  We will have a bin outside of the main school doors all day long.  Our school is located at 8001 E Cedar Ave. Thank you for helping to keep our kiddos’ bellies full!

Ongoing Opportunities

Coupons For Charity

Lowry Resident Laura Daily coordinates this easy way to help local charities. Simply drop off your unwanted coupon inserts (the ones found in Sunday newspapers) at her home. There’s a waterproof plastic tub to the right of the front door. And before you ask, yes you can cut out the coupons you intend to use for personal purposes before leaving the rest of your stash at Laura’s. (Do make sure the coupons haven’t expired.)

In turn, Laura and Lyn Schaffer use the coupons to buy much needed products for pennies on the dollar to be donated to Families First, a local nonprofit whose mission is to prevent the abuse and neglect of children by providing education, family support, and treatment. Make it a habit and leave your coupons at 7421 E Archer Place.

Sally’s Repurposing Project

Every month Lowry Resident Sally Kurtzman coordinates a collection drive of specific items (or a category of items) that get donated to local nonprofits. Bring all items to the Montclair Rec Center at 8th & Ulster during operational hours throughout the month. Look for the Lowry Recycles Collection Box. Questions? Contact Sally at sallyk@ecentral.com.
