While former UT star Peyton Manning was busy leading the Denver Broncos, his charity, The Peyback Foundation, was helping families right here in Knoxville.
Gift cards were distributed to 14 Knoxville elementary schools on Monday. Those schools will hand out the cards to students in need to help their families over the holidays.
The cards are good for $30 worth of gas at any Pilot store.
"To be able to get from point A to point B is really a big thing, and it's certainly a great thing that Peyton and his foundation make available every year," said Scott Bacon.
This year's gas card donation was worth more than $15,000.
