UCHealth Training Center’s Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse (13403 E. Broncos Parkway, Englewood, CO 80112) will serve as a one-day donation site for Denver Rescue Mission’s ‘A Turkey on Every Table’ turkey drive on Friday from 2-6 p.m.

For Friday’s turkey drive, requested donations include frozen turkeys (12+ lbs.), boxed mashed potatoes, boxed stuffing, canned fruit, canned vegetables and canned yams.

The Broncos will also assist Denver Rescue Mission with their annual Thanksgiving ‘Banquet in a Box’ Turkey Distribution on Tuesday from 8 a.m.–12 p.m. at Broncos Stadium at Mile High (Lot B).

Broncos players and the Broncos Women’s Organization will help distribute more than 1,000 Thanksgiving turkeys and food boxes to pre-registered families in need next Tuesday at the team’s stadium. Thanksgiving boxes will include a turkey, potatoes, stuffing and other traditional Thanksgiving food and feed approximately 8-10 people.

Each year the Denver Rescue Mission collects more than 15,000 turkeys with the goal of putting a turkey on every table for Thanksgiving. The organization partners with 100 agencies including churches, schools and non-profits to bring Thanksgiving into the homes of people in need.
