The Packers Women's Association is teaming up with Festival Foods for the 23rd Annual Food Drive for Paul's Pantry prior to the Packers-Lions game, Oct. 18, at Lambeau Field. This year's effort is headed by co-chairwomen Laura Hawk and Megan Colledge.
At the game prior to kickoff, PWA members will collect non-perishable food items and cash donations in the stadium parking lot and at the gates. Each PWA member will be wearing the jersey of her husband or significant other, or a PWA jersey. Food items can be placed in bins located throughout the Lambeau Field parking lot. Volunteers from Paul's Pantry, a supplementary food distribution program for the needy in the greater Green Bay area, will be assisting with the collection and wearing PWA pins. A Festival Foods 'Big Cart' will be on site to promote the cause, too.
Overall, in 22 years of conducting the food drive, the PWA has collected approximately 580,800 non-perishable food items and $214,450 for Paul's Pantry.
