From writing holiday greeting cards to mopping the floors of their gymnasium, sixth graders at North Middle School took time to give back to their community - but not without some help!
North Polar Bears teamed up with the Denver Broncos and Mile High United Way for a #CharacterChallenge to write holiday greeting cards, clean up their school grounds and learn the value of community service.
“Community service is important because it helps give back to others in a positive and meaningful way,” said sixth grader Bryan Castaneda. “It teaches me to be a good person and to have empathy for the people around me.”
Dalton Risner of the Denver Broncos explained how giving back can build character and ultimately lead to a happy and successful life.
“The type of person you are is more important than your hopes and dreams,” said Risner. “If you are a good person with a good heart, you can do anything you set your mind to.”
Thank you Denver Broncos and the Mile High United Way for supporting our students and community at North!
