Collecting donations to Boulder County Safehouse this week

I hope everyone had a good holiday weekend. We had another fun prowler workout on Saturday - good work!

We have some things to donate to the Boulder County Safehouse, and we're planning to make a trip to drop them off on Saturday. If you have anything you'd like to donate, you can bring it to the gym this week and we'll drop it off for you. They list things that they need here, and I'll repost the list below. They don't need clothing donations because of a partnership with ARES Thrift Store, but they recommend donating clothing directly to ARES, so we'll be making a dropoff there too if you have clothing to donate. We'll have a box at the gym for you to leave your donations. It's a good chance to clear out and help people in our community at the same time. Please take a look at the list and make sure your items are things that are needed and in good condition. Thanks!

Workout
Push press 5x3
then max rep pull-ups

We'll take about 15 minutes to find a heavy 3, then another 15 minutes to do the 5x3. For the max pull-ups, if you get less than 10, you test your max again with ring rows.
