COLORADO, USA — The weather will be in the 90s this week, but we’re already thinking about school. 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.

Supplies collected from this drive will be going to 15 school districts with the greatest need.

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.

There are a variety of ways you can donate:

Volunteers of America - 2660 Larimer St., Denver, CO 80205

Larry H. Miller Dealerships - Denver and Boulder area locations (see list here)
