Frequently overlooked is what the Green Bay Packers players and the organization are doing outside the playing field. In an attempt to bring light to their charitable contributions to the community and balanced coverage, we bring you this weekly feature...
- Wide receiver Donald Driver hosts "An Evening of Elegance" tonight inside the Lambeau Field atrium, an event that includes cocktails, dinner and a silent auction as a fund raiser for the Donald Driver Foundation:
"The foundation's goal is to help change homeless family and education issues each day with STRONG HANDS that build and strengthen instead of destroy and weaken, with STRONG MINDS that invent new ideas to achieve these goals, and with LOVING HEARTS that overflow with love and compassion."
- Before this Sunday's game at Lambeau Field, the Packers Women's Association will be conducting their annual food drive for Paul's Pantry, a supplementary food distribution program in the greater Green Bay area:
At the game prior to kickoff, PWA members will collect non-perishable food items and cash donations in the stadium parking lot and at the gates. Each PWA member will be wearing the jersey of her husband or significant other, or a PWA jersey. Food items can be placed in bins located throughout the Lambeau Field parking lot. Volunteers from Paul’s Pantry, a supplementary food distribution program for the needy in the greater Green Bay area, will be assisting with the collection and wearing PWA pins. A Festival Foods ‘Big Cart’ will be on site to promote the cause, too.
- The Packers, along with the NFL and the Wisconsin National Guard, made a $2,000 donation to the Eau Claire Memorial High School football team as part of their High School Coach of the Week program:
Paul Kling of Eau Claire Memorial High School has been named Green Bay Packers High School Coach of the Week, a program presented by the Wisconsin National Guard, the organization announced Wednesday.
