DENVER —** Denver Broncos partner Noble Energy will participate in a volunteer opportunity and present a check to the Denver Public Schools Foundation for $32,000 on Friday from 12-1 p.m. at McGlone Elementary (4500 Crown Blvd., Denver).
During each Broncos home game during the 2015 season, Noble Energy made a commitment to donate $1,000 to DPS Foundation each time the Broncos' offense entered the red zone (the area on or inside the opponent 20-yard line). The Broncos made 32 red zone appearances in 2015, resulting in the $32,000 donation from Noble Energy.
Noble Energy partnered with the Denver Broncos and Denver Public Schools to make a donation every time the Broncos entered the red zone. On Monday, that effort culminated in a $40,000 donation to DPS.
"Our partnership with the Denver Broncos and the Denver Public Schools Foundation is a natural fit for Noble Energy," Senior Vice President, U.S. Onshore at Noble Energy Chip Rimer said. "It combines our passion for enhancing educational opportunities for students in local schools with our support for Colorado's World Champion Denver Broncos. As a result of our second year of the Noble Energy Red Zone partnership, we are proud to be donating $32,000 to the Denver Public Schools Foundation."
On Friday, Noble Energy and Denver Broncos employees will volunteer at McGlone Elementary's Field Day, assisting with various activities and helping with several student events throughout the day. Noble Energy will also provide a healthy snack to students during the lunch hour and check presentation.
"Noble Energy is an inspiring corporate leader and a tremendous friend to the Denver Public Schools community," DPS Foundation President & CEO Verónica Figoli said. "Their generous red zone gift to the DPS Foundation makes an impact on the trajectory of students. For years to come, this gift will not only enrich the education of our kids but their life experiences. Through their generosity, Noble Energy is part of the fabric of our community."
In addition to representatives, from DPS, Noble Energy and the Denver Broncos, attendees will include Miles the Mascot and a select number of students from McGlone Elementary.
