Be A Friend, Make A Friend Wins Grant from the Children's Corridor!


The Children’s Corridor is many things. It’s a place. It’s an idea. It’s a commitment. The place is 41 square miles in Denver and Original Aurora with 53,000 children, two thirds of them living in poverty or are at risk. The idea is to flood the zone with opportunity and support for these children and families. One way we are committing to this change is by bringing community members together around service projects in their communities.

The Piton Foundation, in partnership with the National Service-Learning Conference, will be hosting a Children’s Corridor Day of Service & Celebration on Saturday, March 16th from 9AM-3PM!

Be A Friend, Make A Friend is proud to have been selected to participate in the Children’s Corridor Day of Service & Celebration.

The Piton Foundation Believes in Be A Friend, Make A Friend​


The Piton Foundation is a private, operating foundation established in 1976 by Denver oil man Sam Gary.
