Packers accepting nominations for Community Quarterback Award

Posted Sep 16, 2013

Award, funded by Humana and the NFL Foundation, in 14th year of recognizing volunteers

The Green Bay Packers currently are accepting nominations for the Community Quarterback Award, presented by Humana Inc.

Funded by the Green Bay Packers, the NFL Foundation and Humana, the Community Quarterback Award recognizes outstanding volunteers within the state of Wisconsin. Non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations are invited to nominate exceptional volunteers who demonstrate leadership, dedication and a commitment to bettering their communities through volunteerism.

The Community Quarterback Award is for volunteers who are not compensated for their services and have served a minimum of one year with their organization. Two recipients will be selected in each of the following categories, for a total of 10 award recipients: Volunteer leadership (board member), youth (age 13 to 17), adult (age 18 to 65), senior (over the age of 65), and small group (five or fewer volunteers).

For the second year, Humana will be matching all funds received from the NFL Foundation, raising the total amount awarded to $40,000, with each volunteer receiving $4,000 for his or her respective charity. In addition to the grants, each winner will also receive two tickets to the Dec. 22 contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers, provided by Humana. The tickets are located in the new Festival Foods MVP Deck, and include food and beverage throughout the game.

”Volunteerism and a sense of community are an undervalued, but important, aspect of our well-being,” said Jerry Ganoni, president of Humana’s small business and specialty products in Green Bay. “Humana’s dream of helping people achieve lifelong well-being includes supporting community engagement, volunteerism and recognition programs like the Community Quarterback Awards.  Volunteering’s a critical part of a healthy community and a healthy self.”

Applications currently are available online at www.packers.com/CQB. The deadline for nomination submission is Monday, Oct. 7, 2013.

Further information can be obtained through the Packers’ community outreach department at 920/569-7500 or via e-mail at Donations@packers.com.
