In helping landscape the House of Hope, Nate Wayne lifts a wheelbarrow of rocks while Tony Fisher and Cletidus Hunt look on
As part of an ongoing effort to inspire people to become more engaged in the community life, the Green Bay Packers and the United Way will take part in the 4th annual NFL & United Way Hometown Huddle this Tuesday, October 8 at 3:00 PM. Packers Aaron Kampman, Tony Fisher, Cletidus Hunt and Nate Wayne will be participating in the event.
The Hometown Huddle is a partnership with the Green Bay Packers, United Way of Brown County, and the House of Hope, a program of the Adolescent Parenting Coalition.
The Green Bay Packers plan to work with the House of Hope and donate the necessary items for a computer room for the young mothers. Many of the young mothers at House of Hope are trying to complete their high school equivalency diploma and the computer room would be a place for them to complete schoolwork assignments, learn skills through tutorial software and possibly take online courses. The children will also benefit greatly by having a learning station to interact with.
Players will assist Willems Landscape Service with landscaping around the House of Hope. The day will end with dinner for the workers, players and residence of the house.
NFL teams across the country also participate in this program on the same day where on average, more than 300 players, team reps and their families interact with thousands of people who benefit from United Way support.
