Several Broncos players spent their off day visiting local schools in support of the team’s ‘Broncos Tackle Hunger’ program.
A group of Broncos that included punter Britton Colquitt, tight end Virgil Green, defensive end Jason Hunter, defensive tackle Ryan McBean, Miles the Mascot and Broncos Cheerleaders visited Bear Creek K-8 School in Lakewood and Lois Lenski Elementary in Centennial for an assemblies. The two schools collected the most non-perishable food items throughout the month of October as part of the the food drive that collected more than 77,000 pounds of food between all of the participating schools.
“It’s real important because these kids give up their time and money and energy to help those less fortunate,” Colquitt said. “And that’s what our job is as people who are blessed, is to give to the those less fortunate and to love our neighbors.”
