During Christmas, people tend to increase their charitable giving and donations to nonprofits. High 5 Plumbing, a family-owned and operated plumbing company serving residents in the greater Denver metropolitan area, spreads Christmas cheer year-round through its High 5 Cares program. Through November, the company has donated $21,465 to nonprofits throughout the Denver area.
“Giving back to the community is something that has been built into the fabric of High 5 Plumbing,” said Cassi Torres, co-owner of High 5 Plumbing. “We are more than a plumbing company, and High 5 Cares demonstrates that. At our core, we are an organization that loves helping people.”
As part of the High 5 Cares program, High 5 Plumbing spotlights different nonprofits throughout the year and donates a set amount of $500. The nonprofit also receives $10 for every High 5 Club membership that’s sold during the month and receives 100% of the proceeds from the company’s High 5 clothing line. Technicians also have the option to donate their bonus to the nonprofit. In addition to donations, High 5 Plumbing also spotlights the nonprofits on their social media platforms.

- Food for Hope – A nonprofit in Adam County whose mission is to empower and strengthen the future of the communities by providing nutritious food to children in need.
