Peyton Manning To Feed 2,000 Families Today

Peyton Manning will provide Thanksgiving meals to 2,000 families, via his PeyBack Foundation.

Peyton Manning is not only exemplary on the field, but also off. Via his PeyBack Foundation, Manning is going to make this Thanksgiving a very special one for 2,000 families. Via the press release:

The PeyBack Foundation is proud to continue its tradition of providing meals for families this Thanksgiving holiday and will do so for the third consecutive year in 2014. The foundation is pleased to announce the distribution of 1,000 dinners each in Denver and Indianapolis to mark its largest distribution ever.

The 2,000 total dinners will be able to feed nearly 20,000 people this Thanksgiving. Each meal, which can feed up to 10 people, includes a pre-cooked turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, vegetables and a pumpkin pie from King Soopers.

The Foundation selected the 1,000 families in Denver through various community agencies, and each family has been given a voucher to redeem at their local King Soopers.

When asked about the Broncos impact on the Denver community and his own philanthropic contributions, Manning said this:

“It’s good that we have a lot of guys doing that. It’s an opportunity to help those that are going through tough times and having some struggles. I think Thanksgiving is important to have a meal hopefully with some type of family or have some fellowship there. We have a lot of players doing good things and it makes you glad to be a part of a good group of guys.”

The Denver Broncos and the communities of his respective NFL homes, are very fortunate to have Peyton Manning. The staff of MHH would also like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
