LEROY BUTLER CONTINUES SUPPORT TO THE
SALVATION ARMY WITH LAMBEAU LEAP LIMITED EDITION
Wauwatosa, WI (August 5, 2013) Green Bay Packer Hall of
Famer LeRoy Butler will be celebrating 20 years of the Lambeau Leap with a
limited edition of the Lambeau Leap on canvas. In keeping with his spirit of
community service, a portion of the sales will benefit The Salvation Army in
Milwaukee County, St Dunstan Episcopal Church in Madison, WI; Christian Faith
Church in Racine, WI and his national Anti Bullying Campaign.
“We are very grateful to Mr. Butler for his continued support of our
programs and services. His compassion for families in need especially children
makes his partnership invaluable to us,” said Major Roger Ross, Salvation
Army Milwaukee County Commander.
Butler said, “When I was growing up other kids made fun of me because
I couldn’t walk and wore leg braces. I grew up in the projects of
Jacksonville, FL. We didn’t have much, but my mother worked 10 jobs to
keep a roof over our heads. She had lots of help. I remember getting my first
pair of new shoes from a Salvation Army. I use to be one of those kids
standing in a line to get a meal. It’s a priority for me and my family to
give back. The Lambeau Leap limited canvas editions will allow me to help
other children who are bullied know they can overcome those challenges and help
families in need with food, shelter and clothing.”
