In 2019, CU worked with The Salvation Army, USAgain, Resource Central, and Boulder Emergency Family Assistance to disperse the items captured, creating a more broad sweeping community benefit. This program increases awareness and provides the opportunity to the student population to participate in local charity, contemplate responsible purchasing in the future and to decrease disposal of items that can be used by many individuals.
