By Katie Hermsen The Green Bay Packers honored 10 Green Bay Packers Give Back Award winners on Tuesday, November 6, with a luncheon in the Legends Club inside the Lambeau Field Atrium. One of this year’s winners is from Kewaunee. Barbara McWilliams will be one of the ten honored for her work with the Violence Intervention Project. McWilliams lives in Kewaunee and works for the Algoma affiliate. The recipients are being recognized for their work in the community, with each one receiving a $2,000 grant for his/her nonprofit group.
“The Packers are proud to honor these inspiring role models,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “Our community is a better place because of their dedication as volunteers for local organizations.”
Funded by the Green Bay Packers, Green Bay Packers Foundation and NFL Foundation, the Packers Give Back Award recognizes outstanding volunteers within the state of Wisconsin. Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations nominated outstanding volunteers who demonstrate leadership, dedication and a commitment to bettering their communities through volunteerism. The volunteers are not compensated for their services. This is unfortunately the final year the Packers Give Back Award will be distributed.
