FoCo Cafe: The Invictus Initiative

(From left to right) Sarah Kaiser, Savanah Chetham, Alanna Pipkin and Broc Bainter from the CSU Invictus Initiative chapter try to spend every other Saturday volunteering at FoCo Cafe to give back to their community. The Denver-based humanitarian organization believes in fighting toxic charities which are "organizations that do not create or support sustainable humanitarian practices". To do this, The Invictus Initiative travels both internationally and locally to "build relationships first that ensure long lasting trust with individuals and communities". The volunteers continue to return to FoCo Cafe due to their relationships first approach with customers in addition to sustainable food and business practices. (Davis Bonner | Collegian)
