GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- Two artists are gearing up for their annual painting of a fence across from Lambeau Field. Each year brings a new design and theme. This year they say they decided to go with the community effort against the Pandemic.

"This really is our way of giving back," said Zane Statz, one of the painters. "We spend all season talking about what will go on the fence, and this idea came up and we went with it."

They way it will work - fans will have the chance to purchase a section of the fence that will have their face on it. There are three packages: Gold, silver and bronze. Each one ranges in size and cost. According to Statz bronze is $100, silver is $300, and gold is $500.

When someone buys a package, Zane and his partner will paint their face on the fence. All of the proceeds will go straight to the Packers' COVID-19 Relief fund. It is a fund that goes right back into the community to help anyone struggling with the pandemic.

"We can't be in the stadium, but we can be there in spirit," Statz said. "Green Bay is unique because we are all part of a community, and it takes all of us coming together to help one another. This fence will be a way of celebrating that, while also giving back."

They aim to have 80 faces on the wall by November. They will begin this Friday and will continue painting as people buy sections of the fence.
