CenturyLink Providing Technology for Underserved Youth in #Denver #Colorado

This time of the year we look for ways to help those around us in our community who may need a little more support and last night I was able to join CenturyLink and the Denver Broncos for a big celebration of just that! CenturyLink, a leader in technological innovation and service, is improving lives by connecting people to the power of the digital world.

Over the last 17 years The Denver Broncos have partnered with The Denver Rescue Mission for a cookie decorating party during the holiday season but this year there was some added excitement.  This year CenturyLink donated over $40,000 worth of new technology to The Denver Rescue Mission - The Crossing facility.  This is a huge donation that will help all of the families who use the resources that The Denver Rescue Mission provides.

About The Crossing - Denver Rescue Mission:

The Crossing is the largest location of The Denver Rescue Mission, serving 130 New Life Program men and providing up to 100 rooms for STAR transitional program participants. Bible studies, case management, counseling, and meals allow families and individuals in the programs to save money and develop the life skills and relationships needed to maintain self-sufficiency after graduating from the programs.

CenturyLink is making sure that the vision of The Crossing can be attained by providing a huge upgrade to their Youth Center.  Providing education is the only way the homelessness of youth and families can be decreased which is why a center like this is so important.  

It was a lot of fun to see the people of CenturyLink, The Denver Broncos and The Crossing come together and officially open the newly renovated Youth Center.  Everyone was excited to see the new room and amazing equipment added to the space.  

Machines that will run faster, will be more secure, and have available services so the children and families as the Mission can learn faster and ultimately complete programs and school.  

CenturyLink provided new computers, laptops, LED monitors, an HD projector and upgraded internet service to The Denver Rescue Mission Youth Center at The Crossing facility.

Once we checked out the great equipment and youth room we were able to mingle with families and employees of The Crossing and meet some of the Denver Broncos before they continued their tradition of decorating cookies with the kids.  

Being that I am a Colorado native, this experience of meeting those boys we watch on TV every Sunday was a lot of fun for me but probably the best part of the evening was seeing these football celebs sit down at the cookie table with the kids.  

This community of people at The Crossing last night shows exactly what we need more of in this world.  CenturyLink is provided the people and families served at The Crossing the opportunities to grown and learn so they too can continue this love and support once they are in a better place.  

What an inspiring evening.  The youth center is ready for lots of learning and support.  I am so happy I got to see the new space and also experience the children's excitement when they saw their new space.  Events like this truly make me thankful for the technology we have access too.  

Many thanks to CenturyLink, The Denver Broncos and The Denver Rescue Mission Youth Center at The Crossing facility for hosting me last night.  I look forward to hearing more about the mission and how the technology CenturyLink provided is helping the programs at the facility.  

Have you or your family ever volunteered at a facility like The Denver Rescue Mission?
