ACC’s ViTaL Team and Community help students at Sheridan High School

Beginning in December 2016, the ACC community donated hundreds of school supplies, peanut butters, toothpastes, and toothbrushes towards a donation drive for underprivileged students at Sheridan High School. During the Spring 2017 semester in a Service Learning session at the All-Instruction Meeting, faculty and staff distributed these donations into 45 backpacks. Adding to that count, 18 extra backpacks were filled with even more donations one night in January with several moms and their young kids from Colorado Academy. The delivered backpacks to Sheridan High School helped ACC enrich its partnership with this concurrent enrollment school that has 85% of their students in poverty. Thanks again to everyone at ACC for your time and donations for these local kids in need and potential ACC students!
