Help Kids Enjoy The Beautiful Game In Denver

Denver SCORES is part of America SCORES, an after-school program for kids in 15 cities nationwide. As their website states, "The Denver SCORES mission is to empower urban communities through soccer, writing, creative expression and service-learning. With teamwork as the unifying value, Denver SCORES inspires youth to lead healthy lifestyles, be engaged students, and become agents of change in their communities." The Denver SCORES Jamboree is a round-robin tournament for student participants and will be held at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Saturday May 19th from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. or any portion thereof, and yes there will be free lunch . Activities that volunteers may choose from include field setup and takedown, goodie bag stuffing, face-painting, handing out water and snacks, helping with the book drive, or refereeing games. Over a dozen supporters, both Class VI and C-Firm, have signed on as volunteers for Saturday's Denver SCORES Jamboree. Thank you! If you haven't signed up yet but you wake up rarin' to get out and do some good Saturday morning---head on over to DSG Park! Volunteers can arrive as early as 8 a.m. and help out as late as 1 p.m. If you can only show up for a portion of that time, that's OK too. The games are going to be on one of the turf fields, most likely field 8, which is in pod 2 (south of gate D). For more information, contact Denver SCORES at 303-832-5879.
