There’s still time to make a gift and keep your toes warm with a pair of exclusive MSU Denver socks.

Socktober promo image.The third annual Socktober is already a tremendous success, thanks to the amazing Roadrunner family.

In the first two weeks of the month, generous donors have already helped raise over $7,000 for the Student Emergency Fund, the DREAMer Emergency Fund and the Roadrunner Food Pantry. These funds ensure that a minimum of 285 Metropolitan State University of Denver students will have warm toes this winter and access to the student-support services they need to be successful.

There’s still time to get your socks and support vulnerable Roadrunners. For every gift of $25 ($15 is tax-deductible) you make to one of the emergency funds or the Roadrunner Food Pantry during October, you and a student in need will receive one pair of limited-edition socks.

Did you miss out on past sock designs? Sock packages with four pairs of socks from all three Socktobers are available with your gift of $85 ($45 is tax-deductible). And the best part? Four pairs of socks will be donated to our students with every sock-package gift. Stock is limited, so get them before they run out!

Show your Roadrunner pride from head to toe this fall by making a gift during Socktober, and together we can ensure that MSU Denver students have the resources they need to reimagine a future where anything is possible.
