October Volunteer Highlight
IOCC's Metropolitan Committees are groups of volunteers who play a vital role in supporting the humanitarian mission of IOCC through fundraising special events and awareness-building efforts. Currently, IOCC has Metropolitan Committees in major cities across the United States, including Denver, Colorado. Since 2002, the Denver IOCC Metropolitan Committee has held a bike/walk to support IOCC when they were one of the host cities for IOCC's Race to Respond, a coast-to-coast bike ride by 5 IOCC supporters celebrating IOCC's 10th Anniversary. In addition to recently holding their annual bike/walk in August, Denver also hosted, for the very first time, a dinner for IOCC in May. Over 150 people from throughout the Denver metro area gathered at St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church with His Eminence Metropolitan Isaiah of Denver, IOCC Executive Director Constantine Triantafilou, and special guest speaker Nenad Prelevic, Program Manager IOCC Serbia, for worship, fellowship, and food, and raised over $20,000 for the work of IOCC!
