We are quickly approaching the end of July, which means our school supply drive is coming to a close. As a reminder, donor drop-off hours for the GIVE Center begin this Friday, July 28 until Saturday, August 12. Please note the highlighted changes in the schedule below.
There will be 2 parking spots reserved for “GIVE Denver Donors,” behind the statue in the parking lot (see image below; look for the GIVE logo signs). If you are unable to drop off during the times listed, please contact me to schedule a time when staff are available to assist you.
For those who registered to “adopt” a student:
When delivering the school supplies to GIVE Denver, please mark the backpack with the student’s first name and case worker name. Call or email me if you would like me to resend your assigned child’s information.
Please note: If you have selected to give your donation directly to the child, it is your responsibility to contact the child’s guardian in order to make arrangements to meet in-person. GIVE Denver will do everything we can to pair a donor who wishes to meet their recipients with recipients who are able to meet their donors. It is not guaranteed that you will be paired with someone who can meet their donor or that your recipient will respond to your calls or emails. If you cannot meet your recipient one-on-one, please know that staff at DHS will ensure your donation goes to the intended recipient for you.
For those who want to make a monetary donation:
Let us do the shopping for you! Click here to donate or mail a check addressed to GIVE Denver (1200 Federal Blvd, Denver, CO 80204). All donations are 100 percent tax deductible.
If you or someone you know would like to assist with stuffing backpacks for our students, please contact me and we can arrange a time during one of our donor drop-off times in the GIVE Center.
For those making a general donation of school supplies:
Feel free to drop by the GIVE Center during any of the times above to drop off your donations, or any of the public drop-off locations listed at denvergov.org/GIVE. Below is a list of suggested donations to fill our general backpacks that will go to children served by Denver Human Services (students not sponsored through this drive). However, you are welcome to get creative!
