A Smashing Good Time at the ReStore and Pumpkin Patch Fun with Respite Care

Recently, our team worked together for two volunteer events with Habitat for Humanity ReStore and Respite Care. It was a great way to get outside with our coworkers and have some fun while 

Helping Hands at the Harmony House

Earlier this summer, we were contacted by the CASA of Larimer County Harmony House for help with a special project – disassemble a play structure from a donor, move it, and rebuild it at the Harmony House. Matt Dunn, our PMO Lead, rose to the challenge! He generously volunteered over 22 hours of his time to make sure the play structure was solid and safe!

Paper Airplanes, Cloud Fluffers, and Sky Makers – For a Cause!


Our Blue Margin Community Works project for April found us creating centerpieces for Respite Care’s Perennial Luncheon. Respite provides care for children with developmental disabilities. “Soaring to New Heights” was the theme, and we were asked to make 50 paper-airplane centerpieces. It was full-steam-ahead from the get go. We filled small tins with foam filler, which needed to set overnight, then put in several shifts making  paper airplanes, three per centerpiece. Not surprisingly, the team lost focus more than once testing their planes' flight-worthiness. Then came the hot glue and wires. The final touch came from our cloud fluffers (i.e., those who glued cotton balls onto the foam to make the sky). In all, we logged 18 hours across 13 employees.

Respite kindly invited us to the luncheon on May 7th, and we heard inspiring stories of the many ways they have supported and cared for so many families over the years. It was truly an honor to help out in any way we could.

A New Year, A (Lofty) New Goal

It has been a busy first quarter here at Blue Margin, and our Community Works program is no exception. In our fourth quarter last year, our leadership team set a goal to increase our community volunteer hours by 100%! Every quarter, our team will now volunteer a combined 104 hours. I’m excited to share that we have already met our goal with just under two weeks left in our quarter (126 hours and counting)! While we’re proud of the numbers, we’re prouder of each of our employees. It takes a team to reach a goal and that goal starts with a need. Won’t you join us in our service to those in need in the Fort Collins area? What goal can you and your team set for yourselves? “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” -Aesop
