Colorado Gives Day

Let’s Drive Change Together

Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, Dec. 5, a special time for the community to come together!

Donate anytime between Nov. 1 and Colorado Gives Day on Dec. 5, and your gift will enable Hands to receive a portion of the Incentive Fund made possible by Colorado Gives Foundation, FirstBank, and other sponsors.

We may even win a cash prize to help us support working single moms and their families with vehicle maintenance, repairs, and placements.

Unlike previous years, donations made with bank or credit card accounts will process immediately on the day they are submitted (not processed later on Colorado Gives Day – December 6th). 

Every Gift Makes a Difference

  • $7,500 Provides a car for a mom in need

  • $2,500 Supports new client’s initial car repairs

  • $1,500 Buys four new tires and brakes

  • $500 Supports maintenance & unexpected services

Supporting Hands, a one-of-a kind organization, makes you part of the team proving an immediate impact in the lives of single moms and their children. Visit to learn more about our life changing organization and how you can be involved.

Mother and Daughter are Standing

Soraya, Hands client since 2020


Donations fund nonprofit programs, but what’s most important is the lasting impact that is made possible because of the gifts. Soraya is a Hands client who has benefited significantly. She is about to successfully “graduate” from Hands’ programs, leaving with a sound vehicle and knowledge about caring for it.

She began her journey with Hands in December 2020 when she received her 2008 Ford Edge at Phil Long Ford of Denver, a service partner who helped prepare the vehicle. It enabled Soraya to provide for her family while completing a business degree at Metropolitan State College and obtain better employment. Soraya’s is just one story that represents hundreds of single moms’ changed lives. Each year, thanks to the community’s generous support, Hand is able to offer its automotive services.

Thank you for scheduling your Colorado Gives Day gift today and inviting 3-5 others to join you.

Hands of The Carpenter (Hands) is dedicated to serving working single moms by addressing the often overlooked issue of transportation, partnering in their efforts to remain employed and to strive toward economic self-sufficiency. Over 20+ years Hands has assisted thousands of single women and their families with their automotive needs. In 2022, Hands served over 300 women (355) in one year for the first time ever, and we are about to hit our 2023 goal to serve 565 single moms! 

Here are some of clients’ reflections about their cars and Hands.
