New Coats on a Snowy Day

Posted Oct 15, 2013

Some Broncos and wives of Broncos helped pass out coats as a part of the Knights of Columbus’ Coats For Kids Distribution.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – As a gentle snow flurry whirled outside, approximately two dozen school children were presented with brand new winter coats courtesy of Knights of Columbus’ Coats For Kids Distribution Tuesday afternoon.

Several Broncos and wives of Broncos, including Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio and his wife Linda as well as center Steve Vallos and his wife, were at the event to hand out the jackets. Robin Fox and several other wives were also helping children find the right coat.

“This is a great project, especially for Denver,” Linda Del Rio said. “We have the first real snow today so it’s kind of like providence that we’re giving out 1,000 coats.”

The organization is planning to distribute more coats later this month.

The weather outside was a reminder of just how important a coat can be this time of the year. Since 2009 the Knights of Columbus Coats for Kids Program has given away more than 125,000 coats to kids.

“It’s great to be back in the community and help kids out that are a little less fortunate and it's great timing with the weather getting cold right now,” Vallos said. “It’s good to see the smiles on kids' faces, getting new coats.”

The event took place at the HealthQ Facility in Greenwood Village and the children arrived just after noon. Jack Del Rio credited the Knights of Columbus for their work and support of the community.

“It’s nice to be able to take a break from the normal grind of coaching football and get away on out lunch break and come over here and share – joining up with the Knights of Columbus,” Jack Del Rio said. “A great organization, they do a wonderful job of giving and I think not only just giving back to the community but maximizing what they have, the resources they have. I’ve been involved with a lot of different charitable projects and I know the Knights of Columbus are excellent about squeezing every last little bit of product out of the dollars that they get.

“So we’re happy to be joined up with them today.”
