Started in the mid-90s by students from the Class of 1996, Students H.O.P.E. (Helping Other People Eat) has evolved into a the largest service learning project on the CA campus – and a major event for faculty, parent volunteers, and school staff as well. The first event served approximately 200 people in a downtown Denver homeless shelter. Today, this Upper School student-run event provides gently used clothing, toiletry and baby care items, new holiday toys, basic medical care including flu shots, and a holiday meal to a growing population – 1800 attendees in 2016 – each December on our campus. Many disadvantaged families are bused by CA from downtown shelters and agencies.
