ECM Work Day, October 19 - Multiple Neighborhoods

Extreme Community Makeover (ECM) is designed to invite volunteers into a partnership with residents of specific Denver neighborhoods to complete home and neighborhood improvement projects. These projects include graffiti removal, landscaping, painting, yard work, or other projects identified by the residents.
