DENVER — The inaugural Denver Day of Service, hosted by the Broncos and Mile High United Way, is challenging the community to participate in 100-minute service projects recognizing the NFL's 100th season on Friday, June 7, at 9 a.m. MDT.
The Denver Day of Service is part of the Broncos' Huddle for 100, a league-wide initiative that encourages fans to volunteer for at least 100 minutes during the celebration of the NFL's 100th season. Additional information about ways the Broncos are engaging with fans in recognition of the NFL's 100th season will be announced in May.
"With the NFL celebrating its 100th season, Denver Day of Service is an impactful way for fans to join the Broncos in highlighting the league's tradition of giving back," Broncos President & CEO Joe Ellis said. "These 100-minute service projects — in partnership with Mile High United Way — will bring together our organization, local non-profits and our fans to benefit our community."
More than 20 organizations have committed to hosting projects, and volunteers can sign up through this link.
The city-wide community service projects will be captained by Broncos and Mile High United Way employees. Several Broncos players, alumni and cheerleaders will also participate and host projects for Denver Day of Service.
"Mile High United Way is proud to partner with the Denver Broncos on this first-ever event. Volunteering is the cornerstone of what we do," President and CEO of Mile High United Way Christine Benero said. "It is exciting to see the full force of the non-profit community and the business community unite and bring this to life. When you join forces with a winning team like the Denver Broncos, communities can be changed."

Mile High United Way
Working side-by-side with the community, Mile High United Way takes on the biggest issues facing Metro Denver. Our united approach changes the odds for the children, families, and individuals in our community, and moves them out of poverty. We believe every child has the right to a safe and stimulating place to learn, and that when every youth in Metro Denver graduates prepared for college or career, our community is stronger. We also know that when people don't have their most basic needs met, longer-term goals like financial stability, are out of reach. When we work together, we make a lasting, holistic, and sustainable impact on our community. Learn more at unitedwaydenver.org. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram: @UnitedWayDenver.
