Packers defensive end Aaron Kampman normally wears green and gold, but Tuesday night he and his family donned red aprons at Bay Park Square Mall in Ashwaubenon to help the Salvation Army of Brown County.
It's their second year supporting the cause as bell-ringers.
They say they're especially grateful for the service the Salvation Army provided their hometown when a tornado devastated Parkersburg, Iowa.
"They did a great job supporting people from the community we're from, so now this is obviously part of the community we're from, and we're just trying to do our small part," Kampman said.
The Salvation Army hopes to raise more than one million dollars this year but staffed kettles raise more money than un-staffed kettles, and the organization needs more people to sign up for bell-ringing.
