Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for May 21, 2015

New, comments

Today we shift focus to the good things that the Packers organization and players are doing off the field.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

So much of what we focus on here at Acme Packing Company revolves around the Green Bay Packers' work on the field, but today we want to call some special attention to their good work off of it. In today's curds, you'll find some notes on one Packer who is working hard to help out his home country in Africa, as well as an opportunity for fans to pitch in for a good cause in a few weeks.

We'll follow those up with some on-field stuff, but that will take a back seat today.
