BOISE, Idaho The Boise State University track and field teams invite fans to “Warm Up With the Broncos,” at the Broncos’ final two home football games against Fresno State on Nov. 1 and against Utah State on Nov. 18.
The track and field teams will be collecting warm clothing and blankets that will be given to local charities via the Boise Rescue Mission. The Broncos are asking fans to donate blankets, coats, gloves, socks, and hats. Either new or used items would be greatly appreciated.
Donation boxes will be located at all four entrances to Bronco Stadium, the Alumni Center, Broncoville, and the Varsity Center.
Athletes and coaches from the track and field teams will be staffing the donation locations beginning at 4:30 p.m. on each of the next two football game days. Donations will be accepted through the start of the fourth quarter.
"I am very proud that our teams have chosen to do such a positive and necessary community service project,” Head Coach Mike Maynard said. “I am hopeful that Warm Up with the Broncos’ is successful and becomes an annual event for the department."
