The yearly ‘Toys for Tots’ campaign collected 1,675 toys and $17,095 at today’s game against the New England Patriots.
Members of the U.S. Marine Corps were at Lambeau Field today to assist in collecting toys and monetary donations. The Marines will distribute the toys to children in need in the Green Bay area this holiday season.
The Toys for Tots collection at Lambeau Field is a part of Green Bay Packers Give Back, the Packers’ all-encompassing community outreach initiative, which includes the Green Bay Packers Foundation’s annual and impact grants, and more than 10,000 autographed items donated for fundraising efforts in the past year. Other key outreach areas include the more than 900 yearly appearances made by players, coaches and staff, youth football grants and outreach camps, cash and in-kind donations, Make-A-Wish visits, and community events. These efforts, combined with direct cash donations by the Packers to various charity endeavors, resulted in a comprehensive Green Bay Packers Give Back charity impact in excess of $6 million in the past year.
