ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have partnered with Denver Rescue Mission to collect and distribute food this Thanksgiving season.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, UCHealth Training Center's Broncos Team Store parking lot (13403 E. Broncos Parkway) will serve as a one-day collection site for Denver Rescue Mission's 2022 Turkey Drive.
Over the past four years, more than 2,500 frozen turkeys have been donated through this one-day collection site. To jump-start the 2022 Turkey Drive, 15 Broncos players have committed to donate 1,025 turkeys to the drive. Fans are encouraged to donate frozen 12-pound turkeys, boxed mashed potatoes, boxed stuffing, canned fruits, vegetables, yams, pumpkin, gravy and cranberry sauce.
In addition to collecting meals, the Broncos will assist Denver Rescue Mission with their annual Thanksgiving Banquet in a Box meal distribution at Empower Field at Mile High in Lot B on Tuesday, Nov. 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
More than 3,000 meals will be distributed in time for Thanksgiving to pre-registered families and each boxed meal will include a turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and additional Thanksgiving items.
Each year, Denver Rescue Mission collects 15,000 frozen turkeys with the goal of putting a turkey on every table for Thanksgiving. The organization partners with 100 agencies, including churches, schools and non-profits, to bring Thanksgiving into the homes of people in need.
