This year, 319 donors helped raise $16,653 for the Student Emergency Fund, DREAMer Emergency Fund and Roadrunner Food Pantry. Additionally, a record 669 pairs of socks will be donated to students in need. Because of the generosity of our Roadrunner community, MSU Denver students will have the support they need to succeed during difficult times.

A big thank-you goes out to our Socktober donors – you will keep hearts and toes warm all winter long. And you’ve provided vulnerable Roadrunners with access to the resources they need to continue to pursue their dream of earning a degree.
