BACCHUS Gives Back


BACCHUS Initiatives Staff

October 9, 2017

The BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA is thrilled to welcome over 500 peer educators and advisors from the across the nation to the city we call home. As you prepare to travel to Denver, CO for General Assembly, we encourage you to consider giving back to the local community. BACCHUS Initiatives staff will be accepting donations towards the Denver Rescue Mission , as part of BACCHUS Gives Back throughout General Assembly.

All supplies donated will support the programmatic efforts of the Denver Rescue Mission. The Denver Rescue Mission assists individuals and families trying to overcome poverty and homelessness. The Denver Rescue Mission provides short-term emergency services, long-term rehabilitation, transitional programs, and housing assistance. The Mission has been assisting the Denver community for 127 years and provides for thousands of individuals annually.

Denver experiences below freezing temperatures and an average of over 50 inches of snow each winter. We will be accepting donations at the registration desk throughout the conference. If you are able, we encourage you to consider donating socks, winter coats, scarves, hats, gloves, and blankets.

In addition to winter accessories, we welcome hygiene products and household items. No donation is too small. Learn more about the Denver Rescue Mission’s greatest need items here.

Supporting a conference host city community shows philanthropic commitment. As leaders at your institutions of higher education, we know attendees of General Assembly are dedicated to serving community needs. On behalf of the City of Denver, we thank you in advance for any way you are able to support.
