College of Contemporary Liberal Studies Annual Mission Day at Food Bank of the Rockies

This bi-annual event hosted by CCLS invites you to volunteer for a great local cause. By giving of your time, you can make a difference in the lives of hungry children, seniors and families. We will be working in the warehouse on Friday, June 15, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to noon. We hope you will be able to join us! Please register so we can provide an accurate count of our group to FBR.

IMPORTANT: Please note all volunteers must wear closed toe shoes (no flip flops, sandals, etc.) and clothing appropriate (pants and capped sleeved shirts) for a warehouse setting. Plan to meet on site the day of the event at 8:15 a.m.

The Gathering Place

On the third Tuesday of each month, a group of Regis staff, faculty, and students serve breakfast at The Gathering Place, a drop-in center for women, children, and transgender individuals in central Denver. All you need to do is show up at 7, and be ready to make pancakes and sausage (and slice up some fruit), and then serve and clean up!

Summer 2018 dates:
  • May 15
  • June 19
  • July 17
  • August 21
  • September 18

If you’re part of a department or unit that would like to take on the whole shift, let Geoffrey Bateman know. Typically about 7-8 people to cover the shift (it can be done with 4-5, and The Gathering Place asks for no more than 10).

For more information, contact Geoffrey Bateman at gbateman@regis.edu

Lunchbox Express (Jewish Family Service)

The JFS Lunchbox Express program makes nutritious, free, fresh lunches available during summer months to children who do not have access to the free and reduced-fee lunches provided during the school year. Volunteers ages 18 and over ride our five Lunchbox Express mini school buses to sites with high concentrations of low-income children, distributing free, fresh lunches and children's books to kids throughout the Denver area.

Highly nutritious, our fresh lunches are prepared daily. Yummy, healthy fare like chicken wraps, salads, baby carrots, 1% white milk — complete meals for hungry kids who look forward to a fun, midday break with our volunteers! In Summer 2017, Lunchbox Express volunteers distributed 20,862 meals and 17,316 children’s books to nearly a thousand children throughout the Denver area. Volunteers can choose one or more four-hour shifts, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Monday through Friday, throughout June, July and part of August. If you would like to provide staff with an employee service day, we can accommodate groups of up to 10 volunteers daily.

All Lunchbox Express volunteers ages 18 and over are required to submit a background check and waiver prior to their volunteer date. Previous Lunchbox Express volunteers do not need to submit new paperwork.
