Hi Broncos Country!
I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season so far. Despite the recent cold weather, this is most definitely my favorite time of the year!
My name is Kara and this is my second year as a DBC. This season has been so exciting and full of amazing memories so far. This past Monday night added to these memories as I was able to share being a part of an incredible cause with a few of my teammates. Wesley Woodyard hosted the Third Annual 16Ways Foundation’s Toy Drive. The event aimed to collect as many toys as possible that will be given to children that otherwise would not receive gifts on Christmas.
My teammate Lauren and I started off the evening by gathering the gifts that people were bringing in and placing them around the tree. It was amazing to see the overwhelming amount of support and generosity that people had in providing the toys. After about 15 minutes of organizing the gifts, one of the volunteers told me that the amount of toys was already double what was donated last year. Although I was not at the drive last year, this did not surprise me, as every time Lauren and I turned around, more and more people were coming in and handing us toys.
This is one of the very reasons why I love this time of the year so much. To experience and see the generosity that our community has is such a privilege and unbelievably humbling. It is a reminder of how gracious the Broncos fan base is, and I sincerely believe that Denver has the best fans in the NFL. Not only are you all so loyal to the team, but you continue to show your generosity and commitment to making Denver such a great place. I wish you all a safe and joyful holiday season! Go Broncos!
