CDPS Employees Invited to Join "Day of Giving" on Oct. 11, 2017

By Germaine Miera

As Colorado state employees, we have a strong history of giving, caring and sharing. On Wednesday, Oct.11, the Department of Public Safety will host a "Day of Giving" featuring two opportunities to "get your giving on" and make a difference in our community.

First, Director Stan Hilkey and Deputy Director Bec Spiess will kick off the department's annual Colorado Combined Campaign (CCC) with Stan and Bec’s CCC Coffee Shop from 9-10 am at the main entrance to 700 Kipling St. in Lakewood. Drop by to make your Combined Campaign charitable pledge, enjoy a cup of coffee and/or bagels, mingle with CDPS colleagues, and enter to win prizes.

Second, the Colorado State Patrol has coordinated a CDPS employee blood drive from 9 am-2 pm at the Kipling Complex. Bonfils will be on site with their mobile blood donation center. CDPS employees showed overwhelming interest in this giving opportunity, so all time slots are already full. Sgt. John Ehmsen is maintaining a wait-list for those who would like to fill in for cancellations or express their interest in participating in future blood drives.

Can't make the events on Oct. 11? Read below for details on how you can still participate in the Colorado Combined Campaign. Additionally, the State Patrol will be participating in "Tip-a-Cop" events in Aurora and Arvada on Oct. 21 that offer an opportunity to give time or donations in support of the Special Olympics. Contact Rob Madden to sign up for a shift or find out more.

Colorado Combined Campaign Details
 It’s easy to give and you can give anytime, from now until December 31. Donate online (no registration required) or by filling out a paper pledge form that you can email to Germaine Miera, CDPS CCC Coordinator.

Whatever your passion, whatever amount you’re able to give, know that when you give through the CCC, you’re a member of a community that comes together to make a million-dollar difference in Colorado. For more information, visit
