PRIMARY INVOLVEMENT OF CSAC MEMBERS:
Everyone in CSAC participates on a volunteer basis. Hours are logged for
purposes of community service documentation only. Our intention is to make
the events and fundraisers enjoyable so that people will want to
participate instead of feeling obligated to do so. Volunteer opportunities
in local hospitals may also be an aspect of CSAC membership.
BENEFICIARIES OF CSAC WORK:
CSAC wishes to benefit the Denver/Boulder community as a whole. Our primary
focus is helping those affected by cancer. This does not mean, however,
that we focus only on those physically suffering from the condition. Cancer
reaches far into the community and we aim to connect with those who
experience the pain of seeing a loved one battle cancer as well as
individuals who have already won the battle against the disease and what to
help others do the same.
Our first priority is people. Many people who suffer from terminal
illnesses such as cancer experience feelings of alienation, depression and
loneliness. The battle is exhausting and the road to a recovery long. We
want to help the people who are affected by cancer by letting them know
that they are not alone and that the vast CU community cares.
CSAC sponsors parties at Children’s Hospital in Denver, where children and their siblings
can come, decorate a cookie or two, and spend time with fun-loving college
students. Also planned is a day of caroling there, during the winter
We are working in conjunction with the Psychological Services on campus to
provide support in a group setting. The support group is free to students, faculty
and other community members and meets Thursday mornings. For more information
