Brandon Marshall and The Jay Cutler Foundation Reward Kids from Open Door Youth Gang Alternatives
Kids Treated by Marshall, Cutler and Teammates to Holiday Shopping Trip Organized by ProLink Sports.
Brandon Marshall, Jay Cutler and several of their Denver Broncos teammates demonstrated the true meaning of the holidays on Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2008, treating 40 kids from the Rev. Leon Kelly’s Open Door Youth Gang Alternatives after-school program to an outing to shop for their families at a Denver-area Walmart store.
Each child, chosen for his or her high achievement and attendance in the program, was given a gift card to purchase gifts for family members to make this year’s holiday that much more special. In addition, the children received a gift for themselves when the more than 100 families whose children attend the program gathered for Open Door’s annual Holiday Party on Dec. 23.
Marshall and Cutler, who are regular supporters of Open Door, were joined by teammates Daniel Graham, Darrell Hackney, Ryan Harris, Chad Jackson and Kenny Peterson to personally escort the children throughout their shopping excursion and lend a hand in the gift-wrapping process afterwards. Graham was pulling double-duty, as his Daniel Graham Foundation hosted its own holiday shopping trip at the store later in the evening. More...
