To celebrate Giving Tuesday, the Broncos and Comcast hosted an assembly at the Denver Broncos Boys & Girls Club. Several Broncos players, cheerleaders and the team’s mascot, Miles, were in attendance to greet club members and help them with educational activities.
Comcast is a proud supporter of the Denver Broncos Boys & Girls Club,” J.D. Keller, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Mountain West Region told the crowd. “Addressing the digital divide is critical. During the pandemic, there were kids who did not have access to the internet. That’s not acceptable to me, and it’s not acceptable to my company.”
Together, the Denver Broncos Foundation and Comcast donated $25,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver to purchase laptops, tablets, 3D printers and technological resources. Comcast made an additional donation of 34 laptops distributed throughout Comcast Lift Zones located at seven of those clubs.
After the assembly, a group of club members practiced their storytelling skills, working with Broncos players and cheerleaders to create their own digital comics.
Broncos players also spoke to club members about the causes and organizations they’re promoting as part of the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats initiative, and worked with club members to draw their own cleat creations.
The Giving Tuesday event highlighted Comcast’s commitment to working with community partners to help close the digital divide.
As technology advances, digital connectivity is one of the biggest priorities for our community,” Stephanie Rideau, Comcast’s Mountain West Region Vice President for Technical Operations, and Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver board member said. “Our shared commitment with the Denver Broncos Foundation and The Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver to ensuring more families have the access, skills and resources to be connected, will help build a future of unlimited possibilities for families throughout Denver.”
