Green Bay Packers players Blake Martinez and Oren Burks will be supporting the Salvation Army on Monday, Nov. 26, from 6 to 7 p.m., by signing autographs for fans in exchange for monetary donations.
To help the Salvation Army reach its donation goals for 2018, fans are asked to donate a minimum of $20.
Packers players are signing autographs for visitors to the Lambeau Field Atrium on Monday evenings this holiday season. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has pledged to match each donation made during the autograph signings, which will double the amount the Salvation Army receives during the five signing events, up to $50,000.
The Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign is an important holiday tradition in the Green Bay community, as many of the organization's programs operate only because of the money received through Red Kettle donations. All proceeds raised go towards aiding needy families, seniors, and the homeless in Green Bay.
The names of the players participating in each signing will be announced the week prior to each event. The schedule is as follows:
- Nov. 19, at 6 p.m.: Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson
- Nov. 26, at 6 p.m.: Blake Martinez and Oren Burks
- Dec. 3, at 6 p.m.: TBA
- Dec. 10, at 6 p.m.: TBA
- Dec. 17, at 6 p.m.: TBA
