Colorado Congressman Spends Saturdays Supporting Community
Video is available here.
A Colorado Congressman is giving new meaning to the title “public servant.” U.S. Representative Jason Crow is coming together with other volunteers to launch a new community service initiative that he calls “Service Saturdays.”
An Army Ranger turned U.S. Representative, Crow says service is part of his DNA. As part of his initiative, he’s served food to homeless people and laid tile at a Habitat for Humanity remodel. He tackles challenges like affordable housing in a tangible way.
It’s a struggle this former Army Ranger, who worked construction to put himself through college, has lived.
“It’s been long path for me to the halls of Congress. I worked minimum wage jobs in high school, worked in fast food at Arby’s and McDonald’s. I think that background and the different experiences I’ve had really inform my work in Congress right now.”
“In the very divisive time we’re in right now, I think it’s really important that people just lead by example. They put the Twitter and Facebook down and they just start doing the work and they just show what you can do to help each other and promote goodness in community.”
