Packers and Sargento raise $100,000 in "Touchdowns For Charity" program

Posted Jan 20, 2012

Local food banks to benefit from unprecedented regular season totals

The Green Bay Packers and Sargento raised a total of $100,000 during the 2011 season for the “Touchdowns for Charity” program to benefit the Wisconsin Hunger Task Force in Milwaukee County and Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay.
 
During the regular season, Sargento donated $1,000 to the Wisconsin Hunger Task Force for each touchdown scored and $500 to Paul’s Pantry for each touchdown scored by the team’s wide receivers and tight ends. The program raised $70,000 (on 70 TDs) for the Hunger Task Force and $24,000 (on 48 TDs) for Paul’s Pantry. Sargento then raised the stakes in the postseason by doubling the touchdown contributions, resulting in an additional $6,000 donation toward fighting hunger in Wisconsin.
 
In total, Sargento donated $74,000 for the Wisconsin Hunger Task Force and $26,000 for Paul’s Pantry during the regular and postseason.
 
“For nine seasons, we’ve been proud to demonstrate not only our commitment to the hometown team, but also our long-term commitment to helping feed those in need,” said Louie Gentine, president and chief customer officer at Sargento. “We look forward to watching the Green and Gold drive this program to success next year as two great Wisconsin passions—great cheese and explosive football—unite.”
 
Since partnering nine years ago, Sargento – the official cheese of the Green Bay Packers and Lambeau Field – has contributed $775,000 to Wisconsin food charities such as the Hunger Task Force and Paul’s Pantry.
 
Sargento, a family-owned, Wisconsin-based company, is supporting Packers’ licensing throughout Wisconsin grocery retailers during the season with in-store displays and special product promotions to generate excitement with Packers fans. Sargento is also present at Lambeau in concessions with cheeseburgers featuring Sargento Deli Style Sliced Mild Cheddar cheese and breaded cheese curds.
