Student planners of CA’s 20th annual Students H.O.P.E. event are gearing up for a record number of attendees on December 7, 2013. More than 1,700 people are expected to come to CA’s campus to get gently used clothing, travel-sized toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine care products, diapers etc.)  flu shots, holiday gifts and a holiday meal. The program is planned and run by students, and is based on the clothing and financial donations from the CA community. Student organizers say children’s clothing is especially in need this year.  In addition to clothing and personal care items, wrapping paper and monetary donations are also needed.

To contribute by check, please make a check out to Colorado Academy Students HOPE or donate online this year at www.coloradoacademy.org/Students_HOPE.
