SCHOOLS CAN RECEIVE APPEARANCE FROM PACKERS PLAYERS
March is Red Cross Month and the Green Bay Packers and the American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter are teaming up through the "Little Heroes" program to offer area schools the chance to earn an appearance from a Packers player.
Students at elementary schools in the Lakeland Chapter area, which includes Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, and Shawano counties in Wisconsin, along with Menominee County in Michigan, have been invited to participate by collecting coins during the month. The top three money raising schools will receive a visit from a Packers player.
Participating schools are currently collecting coins and will report their totals by Tuesday, April 1, 2008. The numbers then will be tallied and the top three fund raising schools will be announced. All proceeds raised will support the American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter.
The American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter responds to hundreds of disasters helping people with their immediate needs such as shelter, food, and clothing. The organization also provides learning opportunities with classes offered, transportation to seniors and individuals with disabilities and support to military families.
