GREEN BAY – If you didn’t already know it, the Green Bay Packers are a pretty big deal here in Titletown.
Having the opportunity to meet one is something every kid dreams about.
Add an autographed jersey and a custom fathead, and it’s basically a dream come true.
For dozens of students at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Green Bay west side site, that dream became a reality Tuesday, Dec. 3, when Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander stopped by for a visit.
Alexander helped kick off the holiday season for the students at the club by gifting 100 autographed No. 23 jerseys and fatheads.
Alexander spent the afternoon visiting with students in the club’s different programming rooms, chatting with the club’s youth of the month nominees one-on-one and participating in the club’s assembly time.
The Boys and Girls Club organization holds a special place in the heart of Alexander, as he credits the club he attended growing up to giving him the opportunity to play the sport he now calls a career.
The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Green Bay has provided youth aged 7-18 with a safe place to learn and grow during out-of-school hours for more than 50 years.
The club has six locations throughout greater Green Bay.
