The Packers are again inviting fans of the team to join them in supporting the annual Coats for Kids initiative.

Several locations throughout Northeast Wisconsin are collecting new or gently used coats for toddlers, kids, and teenagers.

If you couldn't make it out today, the event goes until November 2, and officials say it can make a major difference.

"The program for the community is important - we know how it gets in the middle of winter, bundling up, and there's some kids that don't have a coat when they're walking to school or playing outside," Samantha Shefchik said.

Each year, the program collects around 12,000 coats for kids.

The coats distributed on Saturday will be distributed later next month.
