2014 Back to School Fair

It was a beautiful day on August 9th for our 2014 Back to School Fair!  We were joined by local community partners to bring a meaningful, family-fun experience to our members, and we were also able to provide back to school supplies to participants.  We were joined by mpowered, Denver Health, Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation, Denver Police Explorers, Z-Ultimate Aurora, Denver Public Library, Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, CUDC, Denver Art Museum, Family Star Montessori and Rockie Mountain Farmer's Union.  Each of our partners provided a fun activity for kids to participate in to earn their back to school supplies.

We are proud to say that our 2014 Back to School Fair served over 500 people, including almost 300 kids who received a drawstring backpack with school supplies!  Be sure to be on the look out for next year's Back to School Fair!

Back to School Fair Preparation

Preparing for the 2014 Back to School Fair

Our 2014 Back to School Fair is quickly approaching on Saturday, August 9th.  The Back to School Fair is in its 5th year, and as grown over the years in popularity.  As a popular event for Denver Community Credit Union, there is no shortage of work to be done in preparation for the big day.  The biggest task is preparing the school supplies that kids will earn by participating in fun activities with participating partners.  Thousands of pencils, sheets of papers, glue sticks and more have to be prepared before-hand.  It's something we have down to a science, however; and with a whole lot of team work, we are able to gather the school supplies into Denver Community sling-packs within an hour.   We are excited for the coming Back to School Fair, and we are looking forward to seeing all of our participants at the Back to School Fair!
