Get Involved Colorado is KUNC's monthly series spotlighting a local organization that offers listeners an opportunity make a difference where they live. By volunteering their time, KUNC listeners can make a meaningful contribution and help to build a stronger community. This month, we feature Imagine! Colorado.
In many parts of Colorado when you dial 9-1-1 to report a fire, the firefighters who arrive to extinguish it are volunteers. These firefighters have other jobs, and serve half of the state’s population. But Colorado has an ever-shrinking pool of volunteers, leaving many communities at risk.
Hard Working Americans are a super group with a diverse background, consisting of Todd Snider, Dave Schools of Widespread Panic, Neal Casal from the Chris Robinson brotherhood, Chad Staehly from Great American Taxi, Duane Trucks and Jesse Aycock of Jars of Clay and Garth Brooks.
The band lives up to its name - they've been on the road since they formed.
