ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — To continue the organization's efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 and help those who have been affected by it, the Denver Broncos announced Monday that they have launched an online auction and donation site to benefit the state of Colorado's relief fund.
All of the proceeds from the auction, in addition to all monetary donations made through the site, will go toward Help Colorado Now, the Colorado COVID Relief Fund. The fund is hosted by the state and Mile High United Way and will be overseen by a committee of community leaders in Colorado to distribute flexible resources to organizations in the state working to help those who have been impacted by the disease.
The auction features a number of unique items and experiences, including a jersey signed by John Elway, a football signed by all members of the Broncos' 2019 draft class, a helmet signed by Peyton Manning and a regular-season experience that includes pregame field passes and lower-level tickets to a game at Empower Field at Mile High.
In addition, the Broncos announced a donation of 5,000 personal protective equipment items to local hospitals and health-care providers in honor of National Doctor's Day to show their gratitude and support for those currently on the front lines working to help people who are fighting COVID-19.
