Roadrunners Give Back Day 2019 - MSU Denver students, faculty, staff, and alumni volunteer together

Join us for MSU Denver’s
annual Roadrunners Give Back Day
rescheduled projects.

 

Although the polar vortex may have derailed our original April 11 Roadrunners Give Back Day, we’ve rescheduled many of those projects for late May and early June, so register now. 

Roadrunners Give Back Day

Our projects give MSU Denver employees the opportunity to serve together on a variety of needs, including hunger, early childhood education, school and neighborhood refurbishment, supporting veterans and more.

Students, faculty, staff and alumni can find new experiential learning opportunities, expand your community network and connect with each other, all to create a positive impact in our community.

MSU Denver faculty and staff will be given four hours of release time to participate and also are encouraged to volunteer together to team-build outside the office. Snacks and T-shirts will be provided for all participants. Morning and afternoon shifts are available.

Interested participants can get more project information and register below.
