Craig Parks and Rec’s Doak Walker football sees Denver Broncos grant
Craig Parks and Recreation recently announced it will receive several thousand dollars from Denver Broncos Charities for the local youth football program.
The philanthropic organization with the NFL team approved a funding request for the Doak Walker tackle football league to receive $3,000 to support the replacement of overused and outdated equipment through the Broncos’ Community Grant Program.
The program provided about $150,000 to 30 programs across the state.
“The selected organizations encompass all five of the Broncos’ community development focus areas — youth development, quality of life, health and wellness, youth football and civic engagement,” read a news release from the Broncos office.
American Red Cross of Western Colorado will be training Moffat County volunteers on disaster cycle services, psychological first aid, and more during sessions Saturday, Aug. 24, according to a news release from the organization.
