The Green Bay Packers Foundation awarded a $250,000 grant to Achieve Brown County in a check presentation ceremony taking place Tuesday inside the Lambeau Field atrium.
Packers president Mark Murphy, as well as ABC’s executive director, Adam Hardy, and chairman of ABC’s community leadership council, Tim Weyenberg, spoke at the event.
“The Packers Foundation and Packers organization are thrilled to support Achieve Brown County with this grant,” Murphy said. “ABC is a tremendous organization focused on improving the wellbeing of the youth in Brown County from cradle to career. We are so proud to be a part of a group that will make a positive difference in our community for years to come.”
Launched in 2014, Achieve Brown County is a multi-partner effort anchored by the Brown County United Way, the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce and supported by the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation. Its 25-member Community Leadership Council is comprised of diverse stakeholders from across the Brown County.
The Packers Foundation now has distributed more than $3.9 million for charitable purposes since it was established in 1986.
