Coach McCarthy And Packers Stand Up To Cop-Hating With Donation To Green Bay Police

While other NFL players are sitting down to protest police, the Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy and the Packers organization are standing up to the current anti-police environment. Coach McCarthy and the Packers organization have announced that they would each donate $200,000 to the recently created Green Bay Police Foundation. The donations are matching grants, and requires the Foundation to raise another $200,000 in order to secure the donations.

The Green Bay Police Foundation, founded in June of this year, is a non-profit organization that promotes excellence in area police departments and helps to improve public safety and partnerships in the community.

The donations from McCarthy and the Packers will go towards building relations between the police and the community.

“I’m excited to support the Green Bay Police Foundation and its work to help all the Green Bay communities build those relationships,” McCarthy said. “It’s important so our children can grow, they can invest, and they can project a healthier and safer community. We want to shine a positive light on the enhancement of these engagement projects that are already in place.”

The Green Bay Police Foundation is headed by Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith, and invests in innovative community based programs, technology, strategies, training, and equipment designed to help Green Bay PD expand their focus on safety and needs of the community.

The Packers are joining the likes of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in supporting law enforcement by raising money for them, rather than making headlines with a lazy and offensive gesture.

If you would like to donate to the Green Bay Police Foundation and help them secure the funds, you can donate on their website HERE.

      Except instead of just taking a knee and actually doing nothing to further the cause, this organization is enacting productive action to accomplish the goals of public safety and partnership in the community; you d.f.
