On Now
Coming Up

The Denver Broncos Cheerleaders started Cheer for the Troops in 2007 when former Cheerleader Jenn Kelly found out from her fiancé there was a need for “basics” for men and women who were serving overseas. That year the Cheerleaders collected, boxed, and shipped supplies and Christmas gifts to a small group of Colorado Soldiers. Every year the tradition continued and grew as the Cheerleader’s co-workers, friends and families started to donate supplies.

Last year thousands of pounds of hygiene, food, and fun items were collected by JDBC families and Broncos Fans. The program grew so much that the organization “Colorado Supporting Our Troops” stepped in to help pack and distribute items to units most in need.

This year, in partnership with Freddy’s Restaurants, there will be collection sites at Freddy’s locations all throughout the Denver metro area during the month of November. Freddy, the restaurant founder, is a proud WW2 vet and has always believed in “Serving those who serve.” To learn more about Freddy and our partnership visit: http://freddysusa.com/cheerforthetroops/
