MSU Denver branded socks on wooden background.Show your Roadrunner pride from head to toe with a pair of limited-edition Metropolitan State University of Denver socks when you make a gift of $25 to the Student Emergency Fund during Socktober. For every $25 gift you make, you will receive one pair of socks and another pair of socks will be donated to a student in need.

The Student Emergency Fund supports current MSU Denver students who are dealing with an unanticipated financial emergency. Your gift will directly support a student in need as they continue on their journey to achieving the American dream of earning a college degree.

According to a recent survey of MSU Denver students:

  • 44% were food insecure in the prior 30 days; 45% worry about running out of food before having money to buy more; 47% cannot afford to eat balanced meals.
  • 62% were housing-insecure in the previous year.
  • 17% were homeless in the previous year.

A small act of kindness can have a huge impact on the life of an MSU Denver student. Make your gift today and share a pair of socks during Socktober to warm the feet of fellow Roadrunners so they can continue to Run With Us!

For more information about Socktober and the Student Emergency Fund, contact Bre Milnes, director of annual giving.
