Packers Organization Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity

CREATED Oct. 9, 2013

GREEN BAY - Members of the Packers organization got their hands dirty Thursday for a very good cause.

Dozens of workers, including Packers President & CEO Mark Murphy, volunteered their time to build a new home for families in need.

"The Packers organization stepping up and providing the sponsorship for this house -- as well as the volunteers to help us build the house -- is just invaluable to us," said Habitat for Humanity Development Director, Shannon Wiegman.

"We're a community-owned team, so for us, giving back to the community is a priority," Murphy said.

The build was part of the 2nd Annual Packers Community Days. The organization usually does to outreaches a year -- one during the season, and another during the off-season.

"It's something that I know our employees really enjoy," said Murphy.

Thanks, in part, to the Packers hard work, a Green Bay family will be moving into their new home just in time for Christmas.

"This is the kind of stuff that really makes us proud to be in the Green Bay area and making the community a better place for all of us to live. We're very proud to be working with the Packers today," said Wiegman.
