Packers In The Community: Week 6

The Packers Women's Association, co-chaired by the significant others of A.J. Hawk and Korey Hall, will host their 24th annual food drive before this Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

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...

  • The Packers Women's Association, co-chaired by Laura Hawk (wife of A.J. Hawk) and Jen Zimmerman (fiance of Korey Hall), is teaming up with Festival Foods to hold the 24th Annual Food Drive to benefit Paul's Pantry before Sunday's game when the Packers host the Miami Dolphins at noon CDT at Lambeau Field.

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 have donated $1,000 to the Ashwaubenon High School football program after naming head coach Mark Jonas as the team's High School Coach of the Week.

Jonas, in his second year as head coach, led the Jaguars to a 21-7 victory over the defending Fox River Classic Conference champion Bay Port last Friday. Ashwaubenon improved to 7-0 and remains the only undefeated team in the conference.

  • Linebacker A.J. Hawk and wife Laura, along with author Steve Rose, will be signing copies of the book Pea Soup for the Packer Heart, which highlights the couple's charity work on Friday Oct. 22 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the Packer Pro Shop.

In Pea Soup for the Packer Heart, Rose continues to touch the hearts of Packers fans. In Chapter #34, Rawhide, Roger & The Way Outfitters, Rose shares the inspiring stories that take place at The Way Outfitters, a charitable organization that has become especially close to the Hawks. The Way Outfitters, a non-profit group from Three Lakes, takes terminally ill children and veterans on outdoor excursions.
