Find opportunities to embody the spirit of giving on the Northwest Denver Campus

As the holiday season starts, so too does a season of giving back to others. After all, service starts close to home.

In the coming weeks, there are a number of service opportunities coming up on the main campus, including preparing food bags and drives for non-perishable food items, collecting coats and donating blood.

Nov. 6-17: Food Drive & Winter Clothing Collection

The Office of Alumni Engagement is collecting canned and non-perishable food items throughout the week.

On behalf of Christ in the City, they are also collecting coats, basics and winter clothing for migrants and refugees who are new to this country and to the Denver winter weather. Please collect and bring in used coats, clothing and shoes in all sizes and for all ages and genders.

The full list of requested items is below.


  • Jackets
  • Sweatshirts
  • Sweatpants
  • Pants
  • Shirts
  • Socks
  • Shoes
  • Boots
  • Underwear (New/unused)
  • Hand warmers 

Items can be dropped off from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Main Hall 222. Questions? Contact

Nov. 8-9: Blood Drive

Did you know: In the United States, someone needs blood every two seconds? Blood can only be made by the body? When you donate blood, the plasma can last in the freezer up to a year but platelets only last up to five days?

Save a life by donating blood during the Blood Drive, hosted by Student Wellbeing on Nov. 8 and 9 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Mountain View Room.

To register and schedule an appointment for the blood drive, go to and use Site Code 5411. Questions? Contact

Save Time While Saving Lives

On the day of their donation appointment, donors are encouraged to complete their health history questionnaire online. Visit for more information and to log in. Make your appointment today at

Nov. 11: Holiday Food Bags & Hanging Lights

Ongoing Opportunity: First Tuesday of the Month Mobile Food Pantry

Each month, Regis University teams up with Food Bank of the Rockies to pack and distribute food to our neighbors facing food insecurity. Anyone, regardless of income or immigration status, can visit the mobile food pantry to receive canned food, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy and meat products. No one will be turned away.

The pantry is open on the first Tuesday of each month from 8 to 11 a.m. in Regis University's Lot 6, on the northwest corner of 50th Ave. and Federal Blvd.

Would you like to help? Grab a shift from now through April 2024.

It’s a great family activity or team building for groups. Please note: Kids 17 and under must be supervised by a parent/guardian on site at all times. We hope you’ll join our efforts.
