Denver — It’s still summer, and most kids aren’t thinking about school, but we are -- it’s time for our Stuff for Students school supply drive!!

Studies have shown that starting the school year with the necessary school supplies promotes learning, boosts self-esteem and helps keep kids in school. So, let’s help the students in our community by collecting schools supplies throughout the whole month of August.

We are partnering with the Denver Broncos, King Soopers, Volunteers of America, and Larry H. Miller Dealerships for this year’s Stuff for Students School Supply Drive.

  • Filler paper
  • Two-pocket folders and spiral notebooks
  • Crayons and colored markers
