Did you hear the news? This year, Iron Sharp is launching an essential Back to School Heart Reach initiative to distribute over 5,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to underserved 5,000 McKinney-Vento and Title 1 students in Aurora Public Schools, Cherry Creek School District, Littleton Public Schools, and Denver Public Schools.

Our goal is to not just provide backpacks, but to also offer these students and their families valuable resources in health, safety, education, financial literacy, and more. We’ll be working with community partners to create an enriching and supportive environment for everyone involved.

On July 30th, we need help giving away backpacks and school supplies to our high need youth. These events have many community partners, vendors, food trucks, and activities, so we also need your help supporting the event logistics and making the day a wonderful experience for the children and their families.

Important! On July 30th, we will have events happening at 2 separate locations. One event will be at Lansing Elementary School and the other at East Middle School. Your location will be assigned and communicated when you sign up through our internal system.

Come help us bring much needed resources to youth in our community!

Mission Statement

We are a faith-based non-profit that serves communities in need by building relationships with local organizations, government agencies, non-profits, and faith partners to mobilize resources into those communities and provide service that is set apart.

Description

Iron Sharp Community Foundation collaborates with community partners to bring provision and resources to underserved sectors of the greater Denver area.

Past efforts include the Faith & Blue Weekend which provided 550 coats, food, baby supplies, and hygiene packs to Lansing Elementary School and Peoria Elementary School in 2021. In 2022, Iron Sharp Community Foundation provided over 1000 backpacks, school supply kits, and other critical resources to high risk Aurora Public School (APS) students.

The 2023 Summer Kick-Off event hosted a Soccer City camp day for over 500 McKinney Vento and Title 1 APS students who were also provided hot meals, non-perishable foods, summer camp scholarships, and critical health, safety and literacy resources. The 3rd annual Back to School Jumpstart project in 2023 provided for 2000 impoverished APS students and 1000 homeless (McKinney Vento) students of Cherry Creek through 3000 backpacks, school supply kits, and bags of non-perishable food as well as 650 In-N-Out Burger meals, 500 Raising Cane's happy meal gift cards, and a Colorado Rapids players meet and greet.
