Volunteers from The RMH Group, Lakewood, Colo., kicked off the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 21 by helping to prepare and serve an evening meal at the Lawrence Street Community Center, an emergency facility for the homeless in downtown Denver. The Denver Rescue Mission is a nonprofit dedicated to serving the needs of homeless men, women and children in Denver and northern Colorado. It also partners with more than 100 agencies to bring Thanksgiving into the homes of people in need.

“I’m proud and thankful for these members of the RMH family and the difference they make in our community,” says Bill Green, president of The RMH Group.  “Volunteering is an integral part of our company culture and we support the efforts of our employees to help address the needs of our neighbors.”
