DENVER – Over 350 underprivileged youth enjoyed Christmas a little early this year, thanks to Delta Eta Boule, Buna’s Village and Toys for Tots this past Saturday, Dec. 21.

Low-income students were the beneficiary of hot meals, an abundance of toys including a free bicycle giveaway at the Hiawatha Davis Recreation Center in Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood.

Buna’s Village is a non-profit founded by CU’s national championship quarterback Darian Hagan and Nyasha Levy, whose 19-year old son DeVaughn “Buna” Levy-Hagan committed suicide in 2010. The foundation focuses on providing Denver families trauma support and tools for early achievement. They dispensed over 300 backpacks with school supplies at Saturday’s event.

"It was such a thrill to help needy families and put smiles on the faces of the little kids," Hagan said.  "We were blessed with a beautiful son and we wanted to show our love for family and children.  Mission accomplished."

CU’s “Barrel Man,” Patrick Williams, former receiver and football administrator, and Christi George, daughter of CU athletic director Rick George, also were in attendance along with 250 volunteers overall to help make the third annual gathering its biggest success yet.
