CSU Global is partnering with the Comitis Crisis Center to collect much-needed socks for individuals and families that are experiencing homelessness in Aurora, Colorado. At CSU Global we are proud to drive student success in a global society while recognizing the need to support the local community. As we think global, more than ever we need to act local.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Drop off any new socks at the CSU Global Headquarters, 585 Salida Way, Aurora CO, from now until Feb. 27 (lobby donation box is available to accept donations weekdays, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Please check out rockitsockit.org for a complete list of items to donate. 
  • We’ve created an Amazon wish list to easily purchase and ship sock donations from anywhere! (Please be sure to select the CSU Global Gift Registry shipping address.)

The goal of Rock It Sock It is to collect 3,000 pairs of socks. New, clean socks are an often overlooked yet critical item for those experiencing homelessness. Comfortable, dry socks can help improve the health and comfort of those who spend hours on their feet every day, often in extreme weather. Let's work together to provide this essential item to our unhoused neighbors, and help them combat avoidable health complications.
