Adopt-A-Student School Supply Drive

GIVE Denver needs your help to make sure hundreds of foster and at-risk youth start the school year off on the right foot this year.  You can help in a variety of ways:

  1. Adopt-a-Student:  We’ll provide you a list of school supplies to purchase for an at-risk youth. School supplies typically cost between $50-75 for one student.  Tell us what how many student(s) you want to adopt by completing the Adopt-a-Student form.   
  2. Donate School Supplies to GIVE Denver:  Our volunteers will fill backpacks for any child that does have an official Adopt-to-Student sponsor.  Tell us what you plan to donate in advance by completing the General School Supply Donation Form
  3. Make a Monetary Donation: We’ll use your donation to go school supply shopping for kids in our care. 

Please deliver donations to GIVE Denver by August 7th, so volunteers and workers have plenty of time to deliver school supplies to our neediest children. Donations can be mailed or dropped off at:

Denver Human Services
c/o Give Denver
1200 Federal Blvd., 1st Floor
Denver, CO 80204

Please make checks payable to 'Denver Human Services' and write 'School Supplies' on the check memo line.  You can also make a monetary donation online by clicking here.  

All donations are tax-deductible.

Please display the Adopt-A-Student flyer to help promote this cause at your workplace.
