GREEN BAY — The newest Green Bay Packers linebacker, Christian Kirksey, is already helping the Green Bay community before he's even played a single game with his new team.

Kirksey, who signed with the Packers in March, reached out to St. John's Homeless Shelter in Green Bay to make sure they have everything they need.

According to St. John's, Kirksey has donated 20 packs of toilet paper, 20 packs of napkins, 540 bowls, 1,000 spoons, 1,000 forks, 1,200 plates, 50 masks, and 1,000 cups.

Additionally, Kirksey hosted a pizza party and provided 30 pizzas to both of their shelters at Spring Lake Church Downtown and St. John’s Homeless Shelter.

In a Blog post, St. John's wrote "We are so thankful to Christian for thinking of St. John’s and his newest home here in Green Bay! His passion for supporting people experiencing homelessness is inspiring, and we look forward to welcoming him to Green Bay when he officially arrives!"
