On September 28th, BombBomb opened its doors to the Colorado Springs Business Community to help raise money for our two service partners, The Springs Rescue Mission, and Mary’s Home. The event was held by BombBomb’s Value’s in Action Team (VIA.) The VIA Team is comprised of a few of BombBomb’s Team Members, who work with our service partners and determine ways that the rest of the employees can help them continue to improve our community. Each employee is allowed two hours of company time each quarter to help volunteer at both non-profits!
Mary’s home is a community helping single mom families make the transition from homelessness to a healthy, stable living environment where they can experience holistic transformation and interdependence. The families will participate in a life-building program through phases offering health and hope as they work to rebuild their dreams and reach their goals. BombBomb assists Mary’s Home by working alongside the families within the community through picking up trash, pruning trees, and maintaining their home and neighborhood.
The Springs Rescue Mission has been helping neighbors in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region since 1996. They are making a real difference in the lives of poor and struggling families by providing critically needed food, clothing, household supplies and services to our neighbors.

And thank you to all our guests who donated to the organizations at the event itself. Each attendee was given the “donation menu,” shown below, which allowed them to donate to a specific action item of their choice! From something as small as paper towels and toilet paper, and something as large as providing a hot meal for 50 hungry souls, there was a unique and fulfilling item for all who attended!
BombBomb Co-founders Conor McCluskey and Darin Dawson, were also presented with their “Colorado Companies to Watch” award from earlier this year at the event.
