NOW: Donald Driver speaks to students in West Bend

WEST BEND, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Former Packers wide receiver Donald Driver spoke to students at Holy Angels School in West Bend on Monday.

Holy Angels only has 250 students, but the school placed first in the Pack'er Up challenge by donating more than 57,000 items to Goodwill. The winning prize was a visit from Driver. 

The contest was held throughout the month of April. At a school assembly, Driver congratulated the students, handed out books, signed autographs and answered questions. 

Driver is a Goodwill spokesperson and talked to the kids about the importance of trying their hardest, treating other people with dignity and making a difference in the world.

"How do you want to touch people's lives? How do you want to change people's lives? But you have to remember you can't change no one else's life unless you're willing to change your own," Driver said. "That's what it's all about. You have to make a difference in this world."

At the assembly, the city of West Bend also proclaimed Monday to be Donald Driver Day.
