Socktober is a monthlong giving effort to raise money for the Student Emergency Fund, a resource created to provide one-time support to current Metropolitan State University of Denver students who are dealing with a financial emergency such as homelessness, housing insecurity, unemployment, unexpected medical bills or other crises.

The Socktober goal is to provide 150 pairs of socks to students and raise over $3,500 for the Student Emergency Fund.

Be on the lookout for the start of Socktober and get ready to show your Roadrunner pride from head to toe!

For more information about Socktober and the Student Emergency Fund, contact Bre Milnes, director of annual giving.
