Students on the CU Denver campus with Auraria will be collecting funds in cooperation with the Red Cross for victims of recent Colorado wildfires.

Dramatic images of flames, smoke, destroyed homes and devastated residents have rallied CU Denver students to try to help.

“As I was watching the coverage,” said Justn Mayhall, Student Government Association, “I realized I was in a unique position to do something about it on campus. So we researched options and are working with the American Red Cross to collect donations.”

Students will be accepting donations –cash or checks only– at the entrance to the Tivoli Student Center that is in front of the Turnhalle on Tuesday, July 3 and Thursday, July 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please make checks payable to the Red Cross.

Contributions are welcome from students, faculty, staff or campus visitors.
