Packers alumni Chris Jacke and Bill Schroeder will help finish the project by spreading wood chips and pouring concrete. 15 to 20 Humana Inc. volunteers are also working on the day-long project.
The new playground will feature new equipment called a custom play system designed by a Milwaukee and Minneapolis based company. Humana and the Packers organization are working with the City of De Pere to finish the project.
