 VOLUNTEER EMERGENCY SERVICE VEHICLE RECEIVES MAKE-OVER

Thanks to Big Dog Wraps and Graphics, Castle Rock our Dodge Durango Response Vehicle was provided with lettering and graphics. We consulted with Colorado State Patrol on what can be displayed and the wording which was utilized. Thanks to Justin Byrd at Big Dog for donating the material and labor! The unit still needs new communication equipment and lighting. The engine and many mechanical parts have been repaired or replaced thanks to our sponsorship at Advance Auto Parts, Parker, Manager Tim Masek, and to Gary Grafft at D&G Automotive in Peyton for repair and installation.

*We want to make it clear we are not storm chasers.

COLORADO FLOOD RELIEF

"STUFF THAT TRUCK"

Pro Players Association coordinated a drive to aid the Colorado Flood victims in the hardest hit areas of the state.

We worked with local agencies in an effort to facilitate receipt of the merchandise and distribution of the items to those most needy.

The drive has received contributions of new goods from Denver Broncos Gameday Merchandising, Kroenke Charities, Brooklyn Veterinary Clinic, Sam's Club, and Creager Mercantile.

Rocky Mountain Conference of Seventh-day Adventists Disaster Response Division, a local non profit, will assist by providing a location for distribution and volunteers. The merchandise will be distributed to FEMA-Registered victims of the floods. This is done to be sure the donated goods are getting into the right hands.

The new clothes and household goods were delivered to the Loveland, CO Flood Distribution Center on Sunday, March 16, 2014.

 

Volunteers at the Loveland, CO Flood Distribution Center pose with some of the new clothes and household goods gathered and donated by Pro Players Association.

Former pro-athletes get patriotic 

12:34 PM, Jul 4, 2011 9NEWS COLORADO
updated 06:15 AM, Jul 5, 2011 

DENVER - Professional athletes showed their patriotism Monday morning in an attention-getting way.

Former sports athletes were out bright and early to celebrate America's Independence Day by waving flags at the Union Avenue bridge over Interstate 25. They caught the attention of drivers passing by with their patriotic display.

Former Nuggets player and now sports radio commentator Scott Hastings showed up along with MLB Hall of Famer Bob McCaslin and others.

This group of people - called the Flag Guys - gathers every major American holiday. The group was started by Denver resident Chris Tucker. Tucker works with the Professional Arena Soccer League. He gathers fellow athletes to show off their stars and stripes.

The written article above was changed deleting the following two sentences (in parenthesis) which appeared on the 9NEWS web site, as we are not the Pro Players Foundation and we were not promoting anything. The article originally read ("They were promoting the Pro Players Foundation. The non-profit organization is a group of professional athletes and community members that supports children.") We were just gathered to show our patriotism, nothing else. This inaccurate information was fabricated to bolster the news article by a 9NEWS staff writer. It was deleted from the article on Tuesday morning, but could not be edited from the video. The following text still appears in the video shown below. 
(These guys are from the Pro Players Foundation. The non-profit organization is a group of professional athletes and community members that support children. )
