The Green Bay Packers recognized nurse and Oneida Nation member Pearl Webster with a nomination for the NFL’s Inspire Change Changemaker Award. The award is given to individuals “making a difference in their community with their social justice work, either individually or as part of a non-profit”.

One of Webster’s biggest efforts for the Green Bay community was transforming a former accounting building into Safe Shelter, which provides temporary housing and resources such as mentoring programs for local individuals and families in crisis. A focus of her life has been her dedication to helping others, especially Oneida people.

“Her dedication to serving others has allowed her to have an incredible impact in the community throughout her life and career,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy in a statement. “We’re proud to highlight her work addressing a critical need in our area and providing a safe, comfortable place for families in crisis.”

Webster received a $10,000 donation from the NFL Foundation to benefit Safe Shelter ahead of the Packers' loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
