The “First Responders Annual Appreciation Project” is a coordinated collaborative effort to honor and thank the much deserving members of the Adams County and Denver law enforcement, firefighters, and EMS communities. 
The project involves a series of “First Responders Appreciation BBQ” events to be offered in Brighton, Commerce City, and Denver, Colorado from Wednesday, July 31, 2019 through Thursday, August 28, 2019.
During this time, there are a total of five “on-site” appreciation BBQ events planned at various Adams County and Denver first responder facilities. It is our goal to raise the finance and gather the resources needed to feed up to 1,500 first responders and give away as many First Responder Bibles and coffee mugs filled with gift cards and community member notes of appreciation as possible.
