DENVER – RE/MAX of Cherry Creek, one of the top producing single-office RE/MAX franchises in the country, is helping the Urban Peak nonprofit organization benefiting homeless youth ages 15-24 or those at imminent risk of becoming homeless in the Denver area. On Wednesday, October 26th, Broker Associates with the leading real estate firm dropped off its first batch of donated items on Urban Peak’s “Fall Needs List” at the charity’s Drop-In Shelter.
“We were able to donate a least one item on Urban Peak’s Fall Needs List, including brand new backpacks, water bottles, gloves, socks, new underwear, hats, gently used clothing and many personal hygiene items and toiletries,” said Leah Vining, Marketing and Events Coordinator at RE/MAX of Cherry Creek. “The volunteers at Urban Peak were thrilled with the generosity of our brokers and support staff. While we were there, it was evident that our donations were very much needed and we were very pleased to donate to such a worthy charity. We will continue to support Urban Peak during the holiday season, and we welcome the general public’s donations as well.”
Founded in 1988, Urban Peak is the only nonprofit organization in Denver that provides a full convergence of services for homeless youth. The charity’s goal is to help these youth overcome real life challenges and become self-sufficient adults. Urban Peak provides five essential services at little or no cost to the youth, including an overnight shelter, a daytime drop-in center, street outreach, education and employment programming, and supportive housing. Youth in housing pay a minimal rent each month. In 2014, Urban Peak served 2,385 youth through the charity’s facility.
Other items on Urban Peak’s Fall Needs List include deodorant, combs and brushes, razors, ChapStick, Regal movie passes, and gift cards to Target, Walmart, King Soopers, and Safeway. For more information and to make donations, please visit Urban Peak online at www.urbanpeak.org.
