Friday, Feb. 21: Mental Health Providers
The Broncos hosted a special breakfast for 50 members of the Denver Public Schools’ Crisis Team on Friday morning at Thomas Jefferson High School. The Crisis Team consists of mental health providers, nurses and volunteers who are enlisted by the schools in times of crisis. Linebacker Joe Jones pre-recorded a video message that was shown to the group during breakfast, and Miles the Mascot made a surprise appearance to show gratitude for their work.
Saturday, Feb. 22: DonorsChoose
In support of teachers in Colorado, the Broncos funded 13 projects through DonorsChoose, a site dedicated to connecting donors with vetted classroom projects that have been submitted by public school teachers. The donation totaled $2,500 and supported programs focusing on inclusive classroom environments, social justice education, STEM and coding, music education, and student hunger relief. Projects were selected by a committee of five Denver Broncos staff members who were recognized through the team’s monthly community service program. Once a DonorsChoose project is fully funded, DonorsChoose purchases all the requested items and ships them directly to the school.
