Colorado Vincentian Volunteers assist “poorest of the poor” in Denver


All aspects of the annual fund-raising mailing — from writing and design to printing and mailing — are donated so that all donations directly benefit CVV. 

About 20 years ago, I was awarded the Archdiocese of Denver Peacemaker’s Award for my writing about social justice issues. The same year, the Peacemaker’s Award also went to Mary Frances and Bill Jaster, who founded Colorado Vincentian Volunteers (CVV), a group of young, professional volunteers partnering with 20-some agencies in Denver serving people in need.

The Jasters recruited me as a volunteer to assist with communications, and ever since I’ve helped write and art-direct the annual fundraising mailing that generates support for the CVV mission of working with people in need. I deeply admire the Jasters and their Volunteers and have been happy to participate in a small way in their mission to work with the “poorest of the poor” in Denver’s inner city.
