The Packers Women's Association, Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb and Campbell's Soup celebrated Giving Tuesday today by presenting a donation of $15,000 and more than 50,000 bowls of Campbell's Chunky Soup to Paul's Pantry in Green Bay.
Following the presentation, members of the PWA joined Cobb and Campbell's representatives in packing food and taking a tour of the facility.
"We're proud to continue working with Paul's Pantry to help stock the food pantry and raise awareness of their need for donations and volunteers," said Audi Perry, PWA member and wife of Packers linebacker Nick Perry. "Paul's Pantry is devoted to helping those in need, and we appreciate the opportunity to join them in the fight against hunger in our community.
The PWA has been supporting Paul's Pantry for many years in a variety of ways, including through their previous food drive on one gameday each year at Lambeau Field. While such gameday collections no longer take place, the PWA is continuing to support Paul's Pantry through this donation.
Paul's Pantry, which has been serving the Green Bay area since 1984, is a supplementary food distribution program for the needy. It relies completely on the community for volunteers, food supplies and donations. It is more than an emergency food pantry; it aims to restore the hope, pride and dignity of those it serves by providing families with enough food every week for as long as they need.
Paul's Pantry always accepts donations, especially in the midst of winter and the holiday season. To donate, volunteer or learn more about Paul's Pantry, please visit paulspantry.org.
