Green Bay Packers players will again be supporting the Salvation Army this holiday season by signing autographs for fans in exchange for monetary donations.
The players will be signing autographs for visitors to the Lambeau Field Atrium on Monday evenings during the next five weeks. To help the Salvation Army reach its donation goals for 2019, fans are asked to donate a minimum of $20. The autograph signings will kick off Nov. 18 with Rashan Gary and Darnell Savage.
Additionally, 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.
The names of the players participating in each signing will be announced the week prior to each event. The schedule is as follows:
- Nov. 18, at 6 p.m.: Rashan Gary and Darnell Savage
- Nov. 25, at 6 p.m.: TBA
- Dec. 2, at 6 p.m.: TBA
- Dec. 9, at 6 p.m.: TBA
- Dec. 16, at 6 p.m.: TBA
