Description

The average back to school supply list can cost over $100 which isn't feasible for many families in metro Denver. That's why Mile High United Way is teaming up with the Denver Broncos to make sure young people have the supplies they need to start the school year off strong. Join us! You can run a school supply drive with your friends/coworkers or volunteer your time to help make sure the day runs smoothly.

Volunteers at the Back to School Bash will assist the kiddos and their families in learning about useful resources from our partners, gathering all of the supplies they need for back to school, and encouraging the kiddos to get active! Review the available opportunities below and help us provide a strong start to the students in our community.

All of the supplies are provided by generous individuals and companies in Metro Denver. Can't volunteer for the event? Be a part of this year's Back to School Bash by donating supplies! View the Documents tab for a list of supplies needed. 

For questions or concerns regarding registration or shifts, please contact Caitlin Henkel at Caitlin.henkel@unitedwaydenver.org
