Green Bay Packers players Randall Cobb, Mike Daniels and Clay Matthews will be supporting the Salvation Army on Monday, Dec. 17, from 6 to 7 p.m., by signing autographs for fans in exchange for monetary donations at the Lambeau Field Atrium.
To help the Salvation Army reach its 2018 donation goals, fans are asked to donate a minimum of $100.
Fans interested in donating to the Salvation Army can also participate in Packers Give Back Day on Tuesday, Dec. 18. Packers employees will spend the day volunteering by ringing bells at Salvation Army Red Kettles at various area Festival Foods, Fleet Farm and Shopko locations. The Packers organization will be matching the funds raised at all Green Bay kettles throughout the day, which is designed to allow staff to get out of the office and give back to the Green Bay community.
Monday’s signing is the final Packers Salvation Army autograph signing event 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 toward aiding needy families, seniors, and the homeless in Green Bay.
