Fans attending Sunday's Packers-Panthers game donated 11,500 non-perishable food items as well as $10,818 for the Packers Women's Association's 28th Annual Food Drive for Paul's Pantry, a supplementary food distribution program for the needy in the greater Green Bay area.
"We are so grateful for our fans who help make this food drive a success each year," said Laura Hawk, co-chairwoman of the drive. "Thanks to their support, the drive helps stock the shelves at Paul's Pantry for nearly half the year. Because of their dedication, we can continue to help our community."
Overall, in 28 years of conducting the food drive, the PWA has collected nearly a million non-perishable food items and more than $300,000 for Paul's Pantry.
Paul's Pantry assisted with the food drive and provided volunteers to collect donations before the game in the parking lots.
Additional donations and contributions can be made directly at Paul's Pantry.
