COLORADO MINERS INC
May 20, 2011

In February of this year, I walked into this organization and was addicted from get go. The recreation center was closed down and this organization called the Colorado Miners opened the doors, and it is absolutely amazing. Randy's heart for inner city kids is amazing. There are so many things that this specific neighborhood needs but there is nobody that will be able to make a difference like Randy can. I started off just wanting to volunteer for about 10 hours a week and I at the present time volunteer for 40+ hours a week.
At the center we feed the neighborhood kids at 4pm monday thru friday. The center has only been open for 6 months and at this time the hours are 12-7pm Monday thru Fri but we are hoping to extend the hours soon as soon as there are funds for staff. This organization gives clothes,and food to kids that need it but more than that the kids are getting their souls fed by someone that truly cares about them. I have never seen a place with so much networking. TO TRULY UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS CENTER IS DOING YOU NEED TO COME SEE WHAT GOES ON HERE DAILY.
