The team says the donation of $106,700 helped the Salvation Army of Greater Green Bay reach their goal of $1.1 million.

A lot of the money was raised during player autograph sessions at Lambeau Field, and during the Packers Give Back Day.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers put a lot of his own money into this fundraising effort.

No. 12 matched donations raised during player autograph sessions.

The sessions raked in $34,274.65 over five weeks. Rodgers matched these funds, bringing the total to $68,549.30.

The funds go toward the Salvation Army's efforts to help needy families, seniors, and the homeless in the Green Bay area.
