Community Service Volunteerism
Community Service is not always a Court Appointed reason of why someone performs Community Service. There are several reasons why a person may perform Community Service. Feeding Denver's Hungry has partnered with multiple agencies and companies within the Denver Metro Area to allow your Volunteerism Time to count towards the different requirements needed for performing Community Service. We understand that there may be a unique reason why someone will need to perform such Community Service.
If you are in need for us to sign-off on your Community Service requirement, meet with Jim directly in private. He may ask some verifying questions. Rest assured, whatever you discuss with Jim will stay in confidence with him and not shared with any of the other Volunteers.
