The company announced the Perfect Pair offer last week for the Divisional Playoffs. In 2009, A&WÂ® Restaurants began a grassroots partnership with Greg Jennings and offered $.85 Papa BurgerÂ® Single to Green Bay residents if the receiver scored a touchdown during a game. The popularity of the program quickly expanded in 2010 to reward all Wisconsin residents with $.85 Papa BurgerÂ® Single. Now, the company is extending the Perfect Pair offer to all of America. As part of its charitable efforts, A&WÂ® Restaurants in Wisconsin recently teamed up with Jennings to tackle hunger with the “Hunger Drive For 85″ food drive, benefitting Wisconsin Food Banks of Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief charity. The effort aims to raise 8,500 pounds of food in just 85 hours.
Jennings is widely recognized off the field for his commitment to charitable causes, and through the Greg Jennings Foundation, he has been actively involved assisting underprivileged children and families. In 2008, his Foundation built its first Habitat for Humanity house in Milwaukee. He is a 2011 John Wooten Leadership Award Finalist, recognized for his play, community and extracurricular activities that best exemplify the leadership of NFL legend John Wooten.
