ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos will be accepting donations at their home opener against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, Sept. 18, with all money collected going toward the American Red Cross Hurricane Katrina relief effort.
Fans attending the Broncos-Chargers game are encouraged to donate cash or checks into the American Red Cross buckets, which will be manned by numerous volunteers.
In addition, a group of Denver Broncos players' wives will be manning the American Red Cross Call Center on Sept. 13 from 1:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. Their duties will be to field calls from evacuees in need of assistance, connecting them to medical, shelter, food, and counseling services as needed.
There also is a link from the Denver Broncos' Web site to the McCormick-Tribune Web site, which allows fans to donate money that is matched, 50 cents to the dollar, by the McCormick Charities Fund, up to a total of two million dollars. The Denver Broncos are partners with the McCormick Charities Fund.
