One Colorado is hosting the back-to-school events “Load the Lockers” this  through August before school starts up again. 

“We just wanted to build an initiative to help the community and give back to the community,” Mahtani said. “We’re committed to helping our communities to help them in whatever ways that we can.”

The Load the Lockers initiative began last year and helped gather a plethora writing utensils, folders, backpacks, disinfectant wipes and much more.

“We got a ton,” Mahtani said. “I think we packed up five to seven large boxes worth of donations. We had to empty the locker a couple of times, just so that we had some room for the donations from everybody.”

The bright-yellow donation locker is in the courtyard of One Colorado behind the Nike and Salt and Straw.

For Load the Lockers, One Colorado is encouraging neighbors to bring their “pre-loved” books and swap them for a new read. — source
