Journey House has received a $5,000 grant from the Green Bay Packers Foundation. The grant, given out as part of the Foundation’s annual distribution of grants on February 12th at a luncheon at Lambeau Field, was one of 145 awards given to civic and charitable organizations throughout the state of Wisconsin.
These funds will benefit the Journey House Football and Cheerleading League. This league, made up of seven organizations that represent a cross-section of ethnically diverse, low-income youth from the city of Milwaukee, has over 500 participants (ages 6 to 14). Beyond teaching the fundamental skill sets of football, character development and education are central tenants of the program.
