Help for Claude Thompson -- Denver small business

Donation protected
Please take the time to help support or fund a Denver icon -- Claude Thompson.

"Shoe shine, get your shoe shine!!"  If you've walked by the corner of 16th Street and Welton in Downtown Denver, you've probably seen or heard Claude Thompson working his magic, spreading smiles and getting a few laughs as he shines the shoes of Denver.   

For 22 years, Claude has been shining the shoes of the business elite, police officers, and even mayors.  All with a contagious smile.   Unfortunately, due to the impacts of COVID, Claude's smile and business has taken a hit that he may not be able to recover from.  

If you are Downtown, please stop by and support Claude and get your shoes shined by this Denver icon.  And while you are there, have him tell you a story or one of his funny rhymes.  And don't forget to check out his collection of hats!

If you're unable to get Downtown to support Claude, REV Energy Services and Oil Connect has joined with other Oil & Gas businesses and individuals to set up a GoFundMe account for Claude to help him through these tough times.  Please donate and keep Claude in business for another 20+ years!!

**To spread his contagious humor and smiles, please comment below with your favorite memory, story, or Claude shout out (one-liner)**
