Bags for a Cause

A portion of the Kaufman & Robinson crew had a blast playing bags for a good cause at Turningpoint's annual Awesome Toss 'Em Cornhole Tournament this past weekend!

KRI is proud to support Turningpoint and the important work they do. Turningpoint began as an emergency shelter for youth in crisis back in 1967. They have served Northern Colorado for over 50 years, helping over 2000 youth and their families.  They teach youth to make better decisions and healthier life choices while providing services that include crisis intervention, substance abuse treatment and prevention, mental health treatment, therapy, coaching programs, and intensive residential treatment programs.

Turningpoint's annual Cornhole Tournament is a great opportunity for our employees to meet and play alongside other groups and local companies who support Turningpoint's great work that is being done in our community. It is a fun and engaging event that also boosts our employee connections. Our employees look forward to it every year!
