Packers For The Hungry

There may be some argument among National Football League faithful, but probably no pro football fan base includes more hunters and shooters than the Green Bay Packers. Where else but Lambeau Field can as much camouflage and blaze orange garb be seen in the stadium on a Sunday afternoon?

This week the Packers announced a "Hunting Down Hunger" campaign to raise money, awareness and venison donations for state food pantries and relief efforts.

The Packers are selling a special line of hunter orange and camouflage hats emblazoned with the team's trademark "G." Five dollars from the sale of each hat will be contributed to state food pantries and other hunger relief efforts.

In addition, Cheesehead hunters will again giving their excess and unwanted deer to the Wisconsin Deer Donation program, which has provided more than 3.1 million pounds of ground venison for needy state residents.
