  • provided design, volunteered in fund raising for materials, and participated in the construction of the Rose Stein Elementary School Student Garden Entry Arbor.
  • volunteered at the Food Bank of the Rockies to sort and box food for families in need. In total we packaged over 5,000 lbs of food which will provide meals for over 16,000 people. In addition, MOA teammates contributed cash donations that provided for an additional 2,600 meals.
  • volunteered at the Jeffco Action Center which provides food, clothing and other basic human needs and pathways to self-sufficiency for Jefferson County residents and the homeless.
  • volunteered at the Denver Humane Society.

In addition:

  • MOA continues to provide pro bono design services for Animal Assisted Therapy Programs of Colorado (AATPC) and Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation.
