Mici to Donate 20 Percent of Proceeds to Urban Peak Mici Handcrafted Italian, Denver’s popular fast-casual spot for hand-crafted Italian fare, amps up their already robust charitable giving program, Dining for Dollars, by donating 20 percent of all proceeds when guests mention ‘Urban Peak’ on November 14, at all four locations, to local organization Urban Peak. Urban Peak is the only non-profit organization in Denver that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness, or are at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Their goal is to help these youth overcome real life challenges and become self-sufficient adults. In honor of National Hunger and Homelessness Week, Mici will donate 20 percent of proceeds from all four locations to Urban Peak on Tuesday, November 14—dine-in, carryout and delivery.

Says Chris Venable, Education and Employment Supervisor at Urban Peak, “National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is an important time for Urban Peak and we are incredibly grateful to Mici for hosting this event for us.

It is a partnership that requires some extra effort on Mici’s part—they collaborate with each youth’s caseworker to provide the support that they need to be successful—but is well worth the endeavor. Mici provides stable employment for Urban Peak youths who have been through their job readiness training. Mici provides the youth with special support to gain skills that will help them be successful in the workplace and in life. Mici also provides 50% off of Urban Peak’s catering orders for their GED graduation ceremonies each year, and a team of volunteers from Mici helps serve at these events. “Our partnership with Urban Peak is such an important one,” says partner and Brand Manager Kim Miceli. “I have been working with them since 1999, when I was the Homeless Liaison for Denver Public Schools.
