On Monday, February 22, 2010, the Green Bay Packers Foundation honored the Innocent Justice Foundation by donating $5,000 for the purchase of much-needed forensic equipment for the Door County Sheriff’s Office and their officers investigating child sex abuse to take child predators off the streets in northern Wisconsin.
The Green Bay Packers Foundation has awarded $176,534 to 62 civic and charitable groups throughout the state of Wisconsin in its annual distribution of grants, Casey Cuene, chairman of the Foundation committee, announced Monday.
The groups were guests at a luncheon Monday at the Lambeau Field Atrium, an event that welcomed all the recipients and honored the outstanding efforts and services performed by each of the organizations. Including these grants, the Foundation has distributed more than $2 million for charitable purposes since it was established in 1986 by Judge Robert J. Parins, then president of the Packers Corporation, “as a vehicle to assure continued contributions to charity.”
Of the Foundation’s contributions, 24 grants â€“ aggregating $104,423 â€“ were awarded to Brown County organizations.
Additional grants, totaling $72,111, were made to 38 other groups around the state.
On behalf of the recipient investigators at the Door County Sheriff’s Office and Sturgeon Bay Police Department, we thank you!
