Help Students in Need Succeed!

With school just around the corner, we're committed to helping students in our community start the school year on the right track. Now through July 31, we need you to #BeAGiver and help us ensure school supplies are available for student in need. There are three ways you can #BeAGiver:

1.   Adopt-a-Student

Register here or click the button below to “adopt,” or sponsor, a specific student and then go shopping especially for them! 



2.   Donate School Supplies

Help Denver Human Services fill backpacks by donating backpacks and school supplies. These backpacks will be distributed to families in need. This year, to support remote/online learning, we are also collecting earbuds and headphones in addition to regular supplies.

See our Walmart and Amazon wish lists for easy shopping and shipping! You can also download a list of items needed by clicking on the 2020 School Supply List button below.


3.   Make a Monetary Donation

Let us do the shopping for you! Click one of the links below to make a $25, $50, $75, $100, or $200 donation. If you'd like to donate a different amount, the final button will connect you with Bryn Daly. If you'd like to send a check, please send it to:
