Epilog Laser Community Involvement

Charitable giving has always been very important to Epilog. Since opening our doors in 1988, we have made a commitment to supporting local, regional and national causes we believe in. Below are a few of the organizations we have worked with:

In addition to the organizations above, Epilog has been involved in various local high school sports and extracurricular club activities.

With each charitable contribution of time and/or monetary gifts, Epilog furthers its commitment to giving back to the organizations that make our world a better place. Below are some of our favorite recent giving activities!

Epilog Marketing Admin and Superstar Event Planner, Jessica Carney (pictured below, front row left), recently participated in the Colorado chapter of Walk MS - and was able to raise $2,275 for a great cause! Epilog Laser graciously donated $1,500 to Team Honey Badger, while Epilog employees and distributors contributed an impressive $515!

The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about multiple sclerosis now - to move together toward a world free of MS. The society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. Congratulations to Jessica and rest of Team Honeybadger!

Once again Epilog Laser employees flaunted their superior bowling skills to take first place in the sixth annual Scrambowl for Lights in Golden, CO. The Scrambowl is an annual event, sponsored by the Golden Chamber of Commerce to raise funds to help pay for the holiday lights along South Golden Road.

Epilog Laser beat out 48 teams that competed for best score, worst score, best team uniform and other prizes. Though ours snazzy Epilog shirts didn't win for best uniform, we DID walk away with the Best Score award and that's all that matters!

This year Epilog Laser and our employees were able to collect nearly $1600 and over 550 toys for our annual toy drive for American Military Family, Inc.

We were lucky enough this year to actually have a surplus of new toys and were able to send those off to the children of airmen at Buckley Airforce Base!

As the holidays approach we're reminded how lucky we are as a company and individuals. In the spirit of giving back Epilog employees have recently donated nearly 300 pounds of vital supplies for various local organizations.

From shampoo to soap to art supplies and beyond, we recently gathered 205 pounds of necessities benefiting the Tennyson Center for Children, Colorado’s leading care and educational center for abused, neglected and at-risk children.

We also worked with another local organization to send almost 100 pounds of clothing to infants and children in Afghanistan.

"Whether globally or locally, giving back to the community has always been a priority for Epilog," said Mike Dean, vice president of sales and marketing for Epilog Laser. "We're touched to see such a tremendous response from our employees to so many wonderful causes."

On March 11, 2011 Colorado's Jefferson County School Board proposed suspending Outdoor Lab due to budget cuts. In an effort to save this valuable program, the Outdoor Lab Foundation was tasked with raising $450,000 from the community.

Through corporate and individual donations Epilog Laser donated $1,161 to assist with the efforts, as many of our employees and their children have enjoyed the program in years past. The Outdoor Education Laboratory Schools (OELS) have been enriching the lives of sixth grade and high school students in Jefferson County since 1957.

Mount Evans and Windy Peak Outdoor Education Laboratory Schools give students the opportunity to explore and experience subjects such as earth science, wildlife, biology, astronomy, and ecology, in a unique mountain setting. By engaging the student in problem solving, team building, decision-making and social participation, the OELS program helps to prepare Jeffco students for successful futures.

The Outdoor Lab Foundation was established as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization to ensure the preservation and continuation of the OELS program.

Epilog entered four teams into the 2011 Golden Chamber of Commerce ScramBowl for Lights. This event raised money to keep the holiday lights shining brightly throughout Golden. While we didn't take the championship trophy, one of our teams did place third and everyone had a great time while helping out a deserving cause.

Once again Epilog partnered with American Military Family for the 2010 holiday toy drive. We're proud to say this year we raised $3,300 and donated 323 toys for AMF!

Thank you to Epilog ownership, employees, associates and friends for participating in this very worthy cause.

This year Epilog Laser and its employees donated 150 turkeys to the Denver Rescue Mission's Annual Turkey Drive!

Employees donated 50 turkeys for the cause, and another 100 were donated by Epilog ownership. We were thankful to be a part of the project and really enjoyed helping make Thanksgiving a little brighter for those in the Denver-metro area.

The 2010 drive set a record with local individuals and companies donating an astonishing total of 18,175 turkeys.

This fall Epilog and employees raised $932 for Secrest Elementary in our first school supply drive! The funds were used to purchase a variety of supplies and classroom accessories for students from kindergarten through sixth grade. Additionally, a portion of these funds were given to the school's Challenge Program as well as art, music and physical education programs. Thanks so much to Epilog and our employees for their generous contributions!

Roy Masters, Epilog's director of operations, and family recently participated in the annual Courage Classic. The Courage Classic is 157-mile ride through Leadville to Copper Mountain, over Vail Pass and around select Summit County ski areas. A total of 2,000 riders registered this year, with all proceeds going to The Children's Hospital.

Kudos to Chad Mitchiner and Mark Schwarz for their recent participation in the Great-West Life Bike MS, a two-day fundraising bike ride that benefits the Colorado Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

This is the tenth consecutive year Chad and Mark have participated in this fantastic event. Over 4,000 participants registered and helped raise over $3 million for a great cause.

A group of Epilog employees recently spent the evening volunteering at the Denver Rescue Mission, helping to prepare and serve dinner to a crowd of over 280 local men and women.

This was the second time a group of ten employees and their families volunteered at the Lawrence Street Shelter, which is the Mission's flagship ministry and central outreach location. Tens of thousands of poor and needy people come to this facility each year for shelter, food, clothing, medical care, client services, and chapel services.

At the Lawrence Street Shelter, all who are hungry—families, seniors, men, women, and children—are welcome for a nutritious meal. The Lawrence Street Shelter serves three meals a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Volunteers bring essential services to DRM outreach program. Epilog was proud to be part of the thousands of people offer their time, talent, and goodness of heart to Mission projects, to help make a difference in the lives of the needy.

Giving back to the community has always been a priority at Epilog. This year was no exception as we worked with two deserving non-profit organizations in our area who both make Christmas a little brighter for local and military families.

Thanks to our generous staff, we donated over 120 new toys for American Military Family. These toys will be distributed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs. American Military Family's mission is to honor and support all members of the United States Military and their families, who together serve and sacrifice so much for all of us as they protect and defend our freedom. During these trying times for our military, we felt it was important to remember that our active-duty military members have children at home who are struggling with the absence of their parent and uncertainty about when they will return. We had the opportunity this holiday season to give them a great token of our appreciation. It is also a great comfort to our military members to know that their families are happy and being taken care of at home. In addition to the toys, Epilog made a corporate donation of $1000.

This year Epilog also "adopted" a family from the Family Tree organization. Family Tree provides a broad range of services and shelter to the families and youth of metro Denver to overcome child abuse, domestic violence and homelessness. Employees raised $200 to help purchase gifts and other essentials for a mother and daughter in the area - hopefully making their holiday season more enjoyable. Epilog was also able to provide a $1000 corporate donation to Family Tree!

We were honored to once again assist Family Tree who recently won the 2009 Governor's Service Award for Outstanding Non-Profit Organization. To learn more about all of the services Family Tree provides for homeless & abused Coloradoans you can access www.thefamilytree.org.

Epilog recently wrapped up our 2008 toy drive benefiting children and teens being served by the Family Tree organization. Employees brought in nearly 40 gifts for underprivileged youth to help make their Christmas holiday a little brighter.

The Family Tree is a Colorado-based charity whose mission is to help people overcome child abuse, domestic violence and homelessness in an effort to become safe, strong and self-reliant.

Family Tree helps people reach these goals by offering a wide spectrum of services including: emergency shelters for runaway and abused youth, women and children victims of domestic violence, and homeless women and children; counseling and support groups; parenting and self-sufficiency classes; temporary and permanent housing; transportation assistance; supervised visitation and safe exchange programs, among other services.

No, it's not a misspelling, Fleece Navidad is the latest community activity in which Epilog employees are participating. This year individual Epilog employees "adopted" 10 different senior citizens at the Camellia Healthcare Center who were in need of warm clothes this holiday season. "For the small price of a sweatshirt and sweat pants, our employees can really make a difference in someone's life," said Mike Dean, director of sales and marketing. "We tend to get so busy and rushed during this time of year - it's comforting to know even a small gesture can really make someone else's holiday." The names of only ten seniors were given to us and upon notifying the company, all ten were "adopted" in less than 60 minutes!
