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.”
