About "Project Worthmore"

Our partner charity

This years fundraiser benefited Project Worth More. Project Worthmore (PWM) was founded in 2011 by Frank and Carolyn Anello as a response to the need for assistance of the refugee families in their community. The mission, and the barometer by which we measure our work, is to provide services and programs that foster community, self-sufficiency and increase quality of life among Denver-area refugees.
