Packers to host 250 frontline workers at Saturday's game as show of appreciation
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Lambeau Field has been pretty quiet without fans this season, but the Packers will be honoring a select few Saturday night, Dec. 19.
The team is welcoming 250 frontline workers and their families into the bowl during their game against the Carolina Panthers.
The group will sit in socially distanced pods in compliance with Lambeau Field's COVID-19 protocols.
It's part of the Packers' effort to thank those who have put their communities first during the pandemic.
“We are looking forward to welcoming this group of frontline workers and their families to the game on Saturday night. We are so thankful and appreciative of all they have done for our community during this challenging time,” said Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy. “While we cannot invite large numbers of these special guests due to the pandemic, we want to express our community’s collective appreciation for all their great work.”
They'll also continue to invite Packers employees and their immediate families to their home games.
