Record Ringing: Packer Backers Dish Out $1,400 to Salvation Army

Globe University Green Bay Student and Staff Partner with Salvation Army of Brown County

Globe University Green Bay, salvation armyA team of four Globe University-Green Bay representatives headed out on a beautiful Sunday morning to ring bells for the Salvation Army for the four hours before the Packer game outside Lambeau field. Tina Panske, Globe University-Green Bay paralegal degree student, her husband, Randy Panske, Milissa Kloida, high school admissions representative, and Nicole Virant, community manager, raised $1,438.15!

A huge thanks goes out to Tina Panske for hassling the tailgaters. Tina brought a whole new level to bell ringing by earning $620.78 all by herself!

Ryan M. Dreier, volunteer coordinator and special events assistant at the Salvation Army of Brown County stated, “It was one of the biggest bell ringing collections that The Salvation Army has had at a Packer game in recent history.”

Globe University representatives teamed up with other local partners to raise a lot of money going to a great cause.

Spending time ringing bells really makes an impact on a person as well as the community. Many people who donated thanked the team for donating their time. One person stated, “I told myself as a volunteer, I would never walk past someone ringing at a red kettle, because I know how it feels.”

Many other people who donated were affiliated with Salvation Army, had rung bells in the past or served on a committee. It was amazing to see the outpouring of support for the Salvation Army and its volunteers.

Local business owners got involved in helping promote bell ringing too! Christopher Handler, Packer fence painter posed for pictures with fans and helped earned donations.

The team was glowing with energy and enthusiasm after the four hours sharing stories about how generous people were especially with the economy. Globe University-Green Bay staff and students regularly partner with local organizations to give back to the community and provide service to those in need.
