socktober socks

Fall is in the air, which means the fourth annual Socktober giving event is here! Keep your toes warm and show your Roadrunner pride when you make a gift to support MSU Denver students.

For every gift of $25 ($15 is tax-deductible) you make to the Rowdy’s Corner Food PantryStudent Emergency Fund or the DREAMer Emergency Fund during Socktober- Oct. 1-31 – you will receive one pair of limited-edition MSU Denver socks AND one pair of socks will be donated to a student in need. Want a warmer sock? Get your MSU Denver ski sock with a gift of $35. 

With the support of our Roadrunner family, last year was our most successful Socktober yet! Over 315 donors contributed more than $16,000, bringing our three-year Socktober total to over $46,000 and more than 1,650 pairs of socks donated! Your generosity knocks our socks off! 

Share a pair of socks during Socktober and warm the feet of fellow Roadrunners so they can continue to Run with Us!

A small act of kindness can have a huge impact on the life of an MSU Denver student. Here are just some of the ways your support is helping our Roadrunners:

  • Rowdy’s Corner Food Pantry – The Student Care Center helps fight hunger and food insecurity at MSU Denver by meeting the nutritional needs of hundreds of hungry students every semester. Last academic year, the food pantry served 1,335 students. 
  • Student Emergency Fund – Last year, our students submitted over 350 applications requesting emergency support. Your generosity allows MSU Denver to provide emergency stipends to students dealing with an unanticipated life event that might otherwise cause them to stop or pause their educational goals.
  • DREAMer Emergency Fund – This fund was created to provide direct relief grants to our DREAMer students experiencing financial needs. Because of the support of our donors, 12 students were awarded $11,750 from the fund this summer.

Get ready to show your Roadrunner pride down to your toes this fall by making a gift during Socktober, and together, we can ensure MSU Denver students have the resources they need to rise and reimagine a future where anything is possible.

*You will receive one pair of socks for every $25 gift ($15 is tax-deductible) made to the funds listed above.
