LAMBEAU FIELD, Wis. - You can help tackle hunger during the Packers home opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The Packers Women's Association is asking fans to bring non-perishable food items to place in bins outside Lambeau Field. They will also be collecting cash donations.
Wide Receiver Jeff Janis' wife, Alyssa, is the co-chairwoman of this year's effort to stock the shelves at Paul's Pantry.
"I love seeing the fans. I love getting interaction with them. It's a really great thing to do right before kickoff, and yeah, we're really hoping a lot of people give back for us," she said.
Fans who donate five food items or $5 will have a chance to win Packers autographed mini helmets.
The wives and girlfriends of Packers players, coaches, and staff have collected more than one million food items and more than $323,000 dollars for Paul's Pantry over the past 30 years of the drive.
