Denver– Von Miller will be receiving the National 2019 Jefferson Award for his efforts with helping out the community, as well as empowering the youth.
The Jefferson Awards will be hosted in Washington D.C. on June 18th, 2019. The Awards was created by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Senator Robert Taft Jr. and Sam Beard in 1972.
“By providing a prestigious platform that recognizes outstanding, selfless acts of service, we motivate our award recipients to do more and we inspire others to take action in service to others, creating a ripple of good,” said Hillary Schafer, Multiplying Good Foundation CEO. “The youth, grassroots, corporations and notable national award recipients who join us at the D.C. Jefferson Awards represent the very best of our country, people who have dedicated themselves to serving others. By bringing them together and elevating their work, we inspire communities nationwide.”
Miller has been helping the youth through his foundation called Von’s Vision. The foundation helps out low-income children with vision problems and helps them out by providing eye exams or glasses for the children.
