The holidays mean a lot to the Denver Bronco’s TJ Ward.

To share his love of the holidays, TJ set up a special evening for 11 families in the Denver area, picking them up in a Mercedes sprinter van and driving them to Dave & Busters for food and games. He then provided families with a certificate to pick up all their Thanksgiving needs at King Soopers.
