On Monday, faculty and staff members, students and alumni will get to flex their CADRE values by participating in a day of volunteerism. Metropolitan State University of Denver is kicking off the Fall 2021 Homecoming celebration with a day of community service through Roadrunners Give Back events. The lineup includes a volunteer opportunity with Food Bank of the Rockies, a Roadrunner Food Pantry drive led by the Peer Mentoring program (which lasts all week) and a blood drive coordinated by the Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion with the community organization Vitalant Blood Donation.
