Packers and their head coach donated 200,000 dollars towards Police Foundation
The Green Bay Packers are the only team in the NFL ran by their fanbase, and they wanted to give thanks to their law enforcement that provide protection to their communities. Mike McCarthy and the Green Bay Packers made a huge donation towards the Police Foundation in Green Bay.
“I’m excited to support the Green Bay Police Foundation and its work to help all the Green Bay communities build those relationships,” McCarthy said. “It’s important so our children can grow, they can invest, and they can project a healthier and safer community. We want to shine a positive light on the enhancement of these engagement projects that are already in place.”
Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith says the Foundation has raised $30,000 since it started in June.
“This is really going to allow us to build those relationships, to have those youth programs, to really help take care of our community and build a relationship between the community and the police department that we think is so important here in Green Bay and across the country,” Smith said, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
