The 25th annual Student HOPE event at Colorado Academy in Denver on Saturday, December 1, 2018.

From the CA community, we need in-kind and financial donations to put on the event. Materials we need include:

  • Gently used clothing/shoes/coats
  • Toiletries: diapers
  • School supplies: backpacks, notebooks, writing utensils

In October, we will be doing weekly drives in each division for toiletries and school supplies.

(New!) Backpack drive in Lower School (The 5th through the 16th of November)
Please consider looking through your closets or storage for a saddle, drawstring, rolling or any kind of backpack that you think a child could use during their school day. As a collective, we are working towards a goal of creating 1,200 sets of school items for underprivileged children who live in the Denver area. We need your gently used backpacks to make this happen! HOPE is a wonderful cause to get your Lower Schooler involved in. Backpacks can be dropped off in each child’s classroom or on drop-off days, and they will be collected weekly.

We are now collecting clothes in bins located in each of the division buildings up until the event on December 7. Also, HOPE volunteers will collect donations in the Upper and Lower School drop-off circles on campus on certain days.

**For organizations wishing to donate supplies, please email us at to set up a donation.
