Packers' Wide Receivers To Take On Vikings' Defensive Linemen In Hour-Long Ring-Off
The Green Bay Packers' wide receivers are set to take on the Minnesota Vikings' defensive linemen in a friendly battle to see who can raise the most money in a Salvation Army Red Kettle Challenge, Oct. 30.
The ring-off competition will take place from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. with the Packers' receivers, Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Brett Swain and Jake Allen, ringing bells in the Lambeau Field Atrium in exchange for autographs. Vikings defensive line coach Karl Dunbar and members of the team's defensive line simultaneously will be ringing bells at a to-be-determined Salvation Army support site in the Minneapolis area.
Packers fans are encouraged to support the effort by stopping by to make a donation. With many area schools off for a teachers' convention, students are asked to support the cause as well.
For those who can't make it to the Atrium during the 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. ring-off and still want to contribute to the Salvation Army and receive autographs from the players, the Packers' wide receivers will be "warming up" by ringing and signing autographs in exchange for donations from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
Additionally, the Packers' Hunting Down Hunger orange hat campaign will be featured with all hat sale proceeds raised during the ring-off going to the Salvation Army's hunger support programs.
