Student Assistance Fund (SAF)
The Student Assistance Fund (SAF), staffed by volunteers, currently serves over 480 students. Located in Room 130 at East, SAF offers books for loan or sale, calculators, RTD bus passes and other supplies to students. A wonderful part of the program is the accountability of the students. Their commitment to the program is demonstrated in their high attendance and their follow through with their financial commitments. The volunteers offer support, encouragement and work with the students to promote accountability. The Student Assistance Fund was created through the efforts of EAFAF volunteer, Anne Sneed.
For information on how to contribute or support this program, please contact Anne Sneed at email@example.com.
Hours: Tuesday thru Friday 10 am to 3:30.
Angel Packs is a food initiative started in the Spring of 2010 after learning that some of our East students do not have access to nutritious meals after the school doors close for the weekend. Numerous students are picking up free nonperishable nutritious meals and fresh fruit for their families each week through the program. Bags are available every Friday after school from 2:30-3:30pm in the Commons and Tuesday-Friday in the SAF office. We typically give away 50-60 bags of food per month. Parents can also visit the East Pantry in the Commons from 9-10:30am on the last Saturday of each month. The Pantry offers a wide variety of non-perishable food, fresh fruit and vegetables, bread and meat as well as toiletry items. The Angel Pack Program is partnered with the Food Bank of the Rockies, and is supported by funds from a variety of community organizations and EAFAF. Students and parents can also volunteer in a variety of ways for this program.
