Emmanuel Sanders Unveils the First "Emmanuel's Locker" at Kepner Beacon Middle School

Kepner Beacon Middle School was filled with anticipation and chatter on Wednesday morning as the entire school received an Emmanuel Sanders Foundation t-shirt upon the students arrival to school that morning. Students knew that Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was going to be in attendance at Kepner Middle School but what the students didn’t know was the surprise donation that Emmanuel had waiting in the school’s auditorium.   

Rooted in the mission of the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation to provide financially disadvantaged families and students with resources and support to reach their full potential and attain a better life, Emmanuel unveiled the donation of two sports equipment lockers – “Emmanuel’s Locker” – to Kepner Beacon Middle School.   

Emmanuel’s Locker, a community outreach program of the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation, is a locker filled with sports equipment for students at Kepner Beacon Middle School to use in their after-school sports who may not have access to some of the sporting equipment they need to participate and/or succeed in after-school sports programs.   

For Kepner Beacon Middle School, Emmanuel’s Locker will be a positive resource for students as the school's funding for sports was cut which has ultimately hindered participation in sports for kids. Prior to the donation of the lockers filled with sports equipment, many students were borrowing their friends and other students sports equipment because many students and their families couldn't afford to purchase their own sports equipment.  The sports equipment in Emmanuel’s Locker will be available for students to use both during school and after-school hours so students can participate in their after-school sports teams.  

Furthermore, the two Emmanuel’s Lockers will serve as one of the primary source for students to use sports equipment as Kepner Beacon Middle was opened in the fall of 2016 with the goal to better educate and serve their students. “When I agreed to open KBMS, we came in with the same idea of focusing on positivity and giving the students opportunities to try and experience new things by attending enrichment classes. I am proud to say, we are building our athletic program and bringing back school pride to the school,” Executive Principal Alex Magaña stated on what it means for Kepner Beacon Middle School to be the first recipient of Emmanuel’s Locker.   

When Emmanuel was a kid, he was provided with resources, such as sports equipment so he could participate in sports, and support from others that ultimately allowed him to dedicate himself to be successful.  

Emmanuel’s participation in sports taught him the importance of perseverance, teamwork, work ethic and dedication. Through the eyes of Emmanuel, the legacy and impact that he will be leaving at Kepner Beacon Middle School is something that is personal and special for him.   

His goal is that the use of the sports equipment in Emmanuel’s Locker will teach students at Kepner Beacon Middle School those same important life lessons that have allowed Emmanuel to have success both on and off the football.
