Denver7 Gives viewers help Denver nonprofit replace stolen catalytic converters

DENVER — After the theft of catalytic converters from school buses in Warren Village, our generous Denver7 Gives viewers stepped up to help the Denver nonprofit continue its mission.

Warren Village helps low-income single parents get back on their feet by providing affordable housing, child care, and career development. In April, a thief stole school bus catalytic converters from their parking lot, leaving the nonprofit with no way to manage its after-school programs.

“They go to the ballet, they go to the zoo, they go to the art museum. Then we sometimes use them for summer trips to the mountains,” Warren Village president Ethan Hemming told Denver7 last month.

Thanks to the help of the community, these buses are operational again just in time for the busy summer season. Our amazing viewers donated $2,000 and BDM Performance Exhaust repaired the buses at a great value.

“It was not what I expected. It is enormous. It means so much to us. Thank you very much,” Hemming said. “Personally, thank you to your viewers. Thank you for being part of our community and allowing us to be in your community.

Warren Village is also making security changes to prevent future thefts.
