What to know if you're going to Sunday's Packers game against Buccaneers
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Lambeau Field is ready for Sunday’s Packers-Buccaneers game, which will feature the Packers’ annual Toys for Tots collection prior to the game.
The Toys for Tots collection offers fans the opportunity to donate new, unwrapped toys for distribution to needy children in the area through the U.S. Marine Corps. Cash donations will be accepted as well. U.S. Marines will be stationed throughout the parking lots to collect Toys for Tots donations prior to gate openings, and will continue collecting donations through kickoff.
Sunday’s game will also feature the “My Cause, My Cleats” initiative, in which players throughout the NFL will highlight causes and charities that are important to them through custom-designed cleats. Several Packers players are participating in the initiative, and stories about their causes and their cleats will be showcased on Packers.com.
The national anthem will be performed by violin soloist Greg Harrington.
The pregame festivities will also honor Magdelyn Dreifuerst from Racine, Wis., as the “Shopko Kick-Off Kid.” The 12-year-old started a giving tree for kids in need at Bethany Apartments, which provides women and children who have suffered domestic abuse with housing and support.
