Packers, Fans Raise $11,501 To Top Vikings' $5,192; Overall, Packers Collect $13,987
Packers fans came out in full force Friday afternoon at the Lambeau Field Atrium and through their efforts the Packers' wide receivers more than doubled the amount raised by the Minnesota Vikings' defensive line, $11,501 to $5,192, to gain victory in The Salvation Army Red Kettle Challenge.
Hundreds of fans came through the Atrium to donate money, get an autograph, take pictures and wish the players good luck in Sunday's matchup against the Vikings. Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Brett Swain and Jake Allen were on hand while Vikings defensive line coach Karl Dunbar and members of the team's defensive line simultaneously rang bells at Mall of America in suburban Minneapolis.
In the "warm-up" hour before the ring-off, $2,486.08 was raised, bringing the grand total for the Salvation Army to $13,987.08.
The Green Bay Packers and Salvation Army thank everyone who contributed today for their support.
