Fifth Annual Encore Gives! Day Brings Volunteers from Across the Rocky Mountain West

Encore Electric, a specialty electrical and technology solutions provider based in Lakewood, celebrated its Fifth Annual Encore Gives! Day on Saturday, September 10 with events at seven locations around Colorado, Montana, and Utah.

Each year, Encore Electric teammates and their families gather for events across the Rocky Mountain West to volunteer at community organizations that benefit the lives of those communities where they live and work.

This year, Encore Electric is partnering with organizations including the Tennyson Center for Children in Denver; Colorado Youth Outdoors in Fort Collins, Colorado; Jovial Concepts Organic Garden in Denver; Care and Share Food Bank in Colorado Springs; St James Episcopal Church Food Bank in Midvale, Utah; Eagle River Clean Up in Eagle County, Colorado; and the Gallatin River Clean Up in Bozeman, Montana. More than 70 Encore Electric teammates are expected to give their talents, time, and energy at these locations.

Some of these organizations have been partners of Encore Electric before, and the new partner groups feature exciting new opportunities for Encore Electric teammates to make community connections and give back.

Volunteers will be doing a wide variety of activities at these locations, including using their electrical skills to install lights and switches, painting, maintenance, yardwork in an organic garden and at a camp, cleaning up rivers and other bodies of water, as well as organizing and handing out food.

“Doing business locally for about 30 years in Colorado and Colorado Springs makes you realize that it is great to work for a company that likes to give back,” said Michael Ferguson, Colorado Springs account manager, during last year’s event. “We can influence our community in a positive way with all of the hands available to help.”

Encore Gives! Day is only one way that the men and women of the organization give back to the community. In addition to volunteer opportunities throughout the year, Encore Electric provides contributions to support local charitable organizations.

The day of volunteerism also perfectly reflects the Encore Electric core value of Service. These core values are an important part of the culture of Encore Electric, which recognizes that the organization can be a force for doing good in the communities where we live and work.

Encore Gives! Day started in 2018 as a way for teammates throughout the Encore Electric operating area to come together for a day of community action. From its humble beginnings with a couple of dozen volunteers, the number of volunteers has grown as the organization has expanded.
