Packers need volunteers to help shovel snow at Lambeau Field
It’s mid-January and that brings in the tough and demanding temperatures and weather for teams in the playoffs. Especially for the Green Bay Packers, who are expected to have degrees in the low-20’s and eight to 10 inches of snow to come down.
There is expected to be so much snow that the Packers organization is asking for people to help clear out the snow both on the field and in the stands for the fans to sit. According to Benita Mathew of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the team has put out the call for 700 volunteers to shovel out Lambeau Field beginning at 6 a.m. Sunday.
Local residents of Green Bay and fans of the team can provide assistance to the organization for this cleanup in preparation for their divisional round playoff game against the visiting Seattle Seahawks.
Those interested are asked to report to the Fleet Farm Gate on Lambeau Field’s west side, with temporary parking available in Lot 6. Vehicles must be removed from Lot 6 when shoveling is complete.
With the NFL game day stadium safety policies in place Sunday morning, all shovelers entering must use walk-through metal detectors when they enter the building. To allow for a more efficient entry process, no bags, backpacks, or purses will be allowed inside.
Shovelers need to be at least 18 years old and will receive $12 per hour, with payment to be made immediately upon completion of their work. The Packers will provide shovels to all who come to help.
