UPDATE (1/11/20):

The Packers announced Saturday morning that "while the updated forecast is calling for lower snowfall amounts tonight, Lambeau Field will still be in need of 350 helpers for removing snow & spreading ice melt on Sunday morning."

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 gameday 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.

The Green Bay Packers are putting out another call for snow shovelers for Sunday's game before there's even any snowfall.

A major winter storm is expected this weekend, leaving little time to prepare Lambeau Field for Sunday evening's playoff game.

The Packers want 700 volunteers at 6 o'clock Sunday morning. They'll be paid $12 an hour for their work.

Come to the Fleet Farm Gate on the stadium's west side.

You'll need to pass through metal detectors to enter the stadium. No bags, backpacks or purses will be allowed inside.

The Packers will provide the shovels and pay you immediately when you finish your work.

"Because of the timing, hopefully it's a perfect storm, if you will: It comes through, does its thing, and then we're able to get things cleaned out with the help of hundreds of our able-bodied fans," Aaron Popkey, Packers director of public affairs, said.

Shovelers must be at least 18 years old.
