Giving Back

C2 Renovations Takes Pride in Giving Back to the Community

Urban Peak – Continued Supporter

On the first Friday of every month Troy Graham volunteers at Urban Peak in Denver. Urban peak was founded in 1988, and is the only non-profit organization in Denver that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Their goal is to meet youth where they are and to provide them with the assistance and support they need to become self-sufficient or obtain the necessary services they need to exit a life on the streets.

Extreme Community Makeover (ECM) – 2014 to Present

It all started in June of 2014, when Troy Graham led the team from Restorations Community Church in an ECM work day.  As the team leader, Troy was responsible for communicating with ECM, surveying the work that needed to happen, evaluating and dividing the 50-75 volunteers and overseeing all 12-13 small projects during the work day. During the work day volunteers work together in a selected Denver neighborhood transforming the outside of people’s homes by painting, fixing fences, trimming trees, picking up trash and cleaning alleys. Troy has continued to participate in ECM work days annually and currently sits on their Advisory Board.

Community Re-Building – Joplin, MO – 2012

Approximately a year after Troy Graham’s initial trip to Joplin, he helped organized a second group to head down for a few days to help with the re-building. The city was in year 2 of a 5 year recovery plan and although there had been a lot of improvement, there was still a long way to go. Here are some pictures of the second trip.

Disaster Clean Up – Joplin, MO – 2011

On May 22nd, 2011 a catastrophic EF5 tornado tore through the town of Joplin, MO. It was one of the most horrific tornado on record, destroying or damaging 7,500 homes, 550 businesses and taking 161 lives. The scene was like a war zone.  After the dust settled and the process of cleaning up began Troy learned that an acquaintance of his who now lives in Denver, was from Joplin and was organizing a group of Volunteers to go down and help with the clean-up. Seeing the devastation in person was un-explainable, it was like nothing he had ever seen.  Troy and the group spent 3 days in the 100+ heat cleaning up debris, sorting through piles of construction material, household belongings and unrecognizable items.

Pathways Church – Bathroom Remodel 2013

When Pathways Church was in need of a restroom restoration, C2 Renovations was able to provide the expertise in running and organizing the project. Labor was provided by one of the Church’s ‘Men’s Group’ and a ‘Couples Group’. After two days of everyone learning and working together they had a great bride’s room and restroom.
