The Green Bay Packers announced today via press release they have donated $500,000 to 16 nonprofit organizations in Milwaukee County.

“We know Milwaukee County nonprofit agencies are performing their usual excellent work, but we know they need additional resources and community support to ensure their long-term recovery, resilience and financial stability,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy via the press release. “Weathering this unprecedented crisis will require sustained compassion and generosity from all of us, and the Packers are committed to supporting those in need now and into the future.”

The $500,000 is part of the $1.5 million COVID-19 Community Relief Fund established by Packers Give Back. The other $1 million will be given to Brown County organizations.
