Over 3.5 million people experience homelessness each year…23% are U.S. military veterans.
The Sock-it-to-Em Sock Campaign was launched in 2011 by Sue Lee, CEO of EQ Media and creator of “I Believe in Me!” When the entrepreneur recognized how many Americans face the harsh winter cold and dampness with inadequate protection for their feet, she asked her friend Phillis Shimamoto to join her in 2012 to form Sock-it-to-Em and began soliciting fellow small business owners, churches, businesses and the local media to pitch in.
The Sock-it-to-Em Sock Campaign aims to cover the feet of as many of those in need as possible before each new year. Their motto is, “We’re taking socks to the streets!” Anyone in any location can participate by donating socks, becoming a Sock Ambassador or just sharing information about The Sock It To Em Sock Campaign on social media or through email.
This holiday season, we are asking all members of South Metro Denver Chamber, and those attending, Business After Hours on Tuesday, Dec. 5th at Denver Botanic Gardens, to bring a pair of socks with them. Infant sized socks to adult size are all needed.
You can also drop off socks at the Chamber Office (2154 E. Commons Ave. Ste. 342, Centennial, CO 80112) or to Sandy and Ken Preuss, E-Travel Unlimited (12150 E Briarwood Ave #145, Centennial, CO 80112).

“We believe that every girl should feel a STEM career is attainable.”
Girls in STEM is a nonprofit organization designed to empower middle school and high school girls in the metro Denver area to seek out a STEM career post secondary education. We achieve this by connecting them with a network of professional women working in STEM industries who are visible and accessible to serve as role models and/or mentors. These interactive, face-to-face encounters are the most powerful way for girls to visualize themselves in a similar career.
Our program is facilitated through after school club chapters with roundtable discussions, handson
activities, field trips, job shadowing and mentorship experiences in addition to leadership and speaking opportunities. We also provide community events open to all girls in the metro Denver area including networking socials, coding camps, documentary screenings and more!

You can be part of the workforce equation and help strengthen the talent pool by increasing the number of women who pursue a STEM career.

DENVER – November 1, 2017 – Comcast Business today announced the expansion of its DOCSIS 3.1-based internet service to business customers in the Western United States, including California, Colorado, Houston, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
With the continued roll out of its gig-speed network, Comcast’s “Business Internet 1 Gig” and “Business Internet 500” speed tiers are now available to business customers in the West, Central, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast service areas using the company’s existing network, without the need for costly and disruptive construction of new network facilities.
“With more companies adopting cloud-based services, leveraging SD-WAN to connect branch locations, and using high-performance internet as a competitive differentiator and growth tool, it’s more important than ever that organizations manage their current bandwidth needs while also planning for the future requirements and the dynamics of the digital transformation of businesses,” said Peter Neill, vice president of Comcast Business for Comcast’s West Division. “Our gig-speed network allows businesses to quickly and easily scale network capacity at their locations and leverage innovative technology services to keep customers happy and increase the bottom line."
Comcast’s DOCSIS 3.1-based business internet service provides gigabit speeds for any business environment – whether a distributed enterprise with locations across the country or a small business with only a handful of locations. Its speed and cost efficiencies make it ideally suited for government agencies and organizations in the retail, healthcare, manufacturing, hospitality and education industries.
Business Internet 1 Gig and Business Internet 500 enable Comcast Business to deploy gigabit service widely across its existing network and reach more customers. With the addition of the markets announced today, DOCSIS 3.1-based internet service is now generally available across Comcast’s national footprint. The service tiers complement existing gigabit and multi-gigabit options already available to Comcast Business customers, including Comcast Business Ethernet, which the company launched in, and has been expanding nationally since, 2011. Ethernet services can support speeds of up to 100 Gigabits-per-second (Gbps) over fiber.
Pricing for these services varies based on business location and number of locations to be served as well as the services to which the business currently subscribes. Customers can contact their local Comcast salesperson or agent for more information. Organizations already served by Comcast can upgrade to Business Internet 1 Gig or Business Internet 500 by calling 855.319.0093 or visiting: http://business.comcast.com/gig
