GREEN BAY — Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings has joined United Way to recruit readers, tutors and mentors during the United Way’s Youth Empowerment Summit.

The United Way of Greater Milwaukee is participating in the summit as part of “Team Jennings.”

Thursday, June 21st was the fifth annual National Day of Action, during which hundreds of United Ways around the United States engaged in service projects to advance education, income and health initiatives.

To commemorate the day, TEAM NFL took to Capitol Hill to speak with members of Congress about education issues.

As representatives of TEAM NFL, each player has a goal to recruit 3,000 volunteer pledges (99,000 total), accounting for almost 10 percent of the United Way recruitment goal.
