Clubhouse Live, Randall Cobb to tackle hunger
Randall Cobb has made his share of big plays as a Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl wide receiver.
But those pale in comparison to the play he’ll be making off the field through his continued commitment to the fight against hunger.
Cobb will be the special guest as part of our Nov. 21 Clubhouse Live charity show, which will take place inside the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel’s Grand Ballroom in downtown Appleton and benefit USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin’s Stock the Shelves program.
Stock the Shelves is a crucial resource for struggling families in eastern and central Wisconsin to receive basic food supplies. The annual campaign, which kicked off Oct. 21 and ends Nov. 25, has set a goal of collecting $842,625 for Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, a food bank with warehouses in Little Chute and Milwaukee that has partnered with more than 550 food pantries throughout 36 Wisconsin counties.
The 26-year-old Cobb, who leads the Packers this season in receptions (39) and receiving yards (388), also threw his support to the Stock the Shelves initiative last season and is an active participant in events and programs that benefit the community.
