Please Join CPS and the P1 Philanthropy Committee in effort to collect and donate Pop Can Tabs for the
Ronald McDonald House Pop Tabs for Cash
March 3 through May 15
ED 2 Student Activity Classrooms
The Ronald McDonald house is an organization that runs
purely on charitable donations and they use the money they get from
these Pop Tabs to pay for food, lodging, housekeeping staff, and
cleaning items. Help us ease the financial and emotional burden of a
family with a sick child.
Save your pop tabs at home or at school and donate them in Education Building 2 N in the Student Communities (SACs).

Feed the Need: Combating Hunder on the Auraria Campus
This year, the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the Community College of Denver have joined efforts to launch a campus-wide food drive competition! Feed the Need: Combating Hunger on the Auraria Campus is designed to bring the campus together by challenging groups to gather food items from January 28th through February 28th to benefit the food pantries on campus. Student organizations as well as academic and administrative departments from all three institutions are invited to participate. Groups are encouraged to reach out to community resources to collect food items and enhance the amount of food collected. The group to drop off the greatest amount of food (by weight) on collection day will be awarded the annual food collection trophy among other prizes for your team!
To register your group for the food drive competition, visit www.feedtheneedauraria.org
Also, we will be offering a series of EVENTS surrounding awareness on hunger and food insecurity, as well as resources for students/faculty/staff. Additional events will include a Hunger Banquet and various educational workshops. For more information on these events, please visit http://www.feedtheneedauraria.org/#!untitled/cjg9

Paris Elementary/Anschutz Medical Campus Partnership
In order to connect with our surrounding Aurora schools, AMC Student Senate has developed a partnership with Paris Elementary School. Volunteers from all University programs are needed on an ongoing basis for the following programs:
Every 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month (September-October, and April-May) from 9 am-12 pm, volunteers are needed to play different sports with ~ 80-90 Paris Elementary school students. Each Saturday there will be a different sport theme and volunteers will help instruct students on rules of the game. This activity is for those volunteers who love to engage in physical activity and have fun with children!
This Spring, a mentor program will be implemented with the students of Paris Elementary. University students from all backgrounds and programs are encouraged to join. Students from the University will be paired with a Paris Elementary student and act as a mentor throughout the year. Students are not expected to contact the student on their own, but instead are included in large events (ie field trips, campus visits, inter-relationship building activities) with their Paris Elementary "buddy." The purpose of this partnership is to build students' confidence and increase their interest in higher education as well as health related careers. Please watch for more information regarding this volunteer program.
If you are interested in participating in any mentoring activities, please contact Stephanie Noble or Sarah Mann
The Student Senate Philanthropy Opportunities Series
provides organizations outside the campus a means to bring their information to the students of the Anschutz Medical Campus. After the organization's presentation announcement has been sent via email, this website will be updated with the organization general information and contacts for future reference. See our Fall 2010 Newsletterhere.
