Denver School of Nursing’s (DSN) students conducted a food drive on behalf of Denver Rescue Mission and donated 60 cases of food to the organization which helps those experiencing poverty and homelessness, said Dr. Marcia Bankirer, president, DSN (

“DSN’s Student Services executes many quarterly outreach events so students can develop a sense of community among their peers and their community,” Bankirer explained. “One way we help DSN’s students become excellent health care providers is to give them a platform where they can transform the lives of others. Giving back to those in need will always be a part of their lives as nurses.”

Denver Rescue Mission meets the needs of those experiencing poverty and homelessness through emergency services, community outreach, long-term rehabilitation programs, transitional programs, and assistance for permanent housing. Since 1892, the Mission has been changing lives in our community.

Each day, Denver Rescue Mission serves more than 1,000 meals.
