'My goal was to always give back:' Kohl's, Donald Driver donate winter clothes to area Boys & Girls Clubs
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Green Bay Packers legend continues to give back to Wisconsin years after his time playing in The Frozen Tundra.
On Thursday, Dec. 5, Donald Driver teamed up with Kohl's to help local children get through the winter months.
"We're impacting the lives of so many young individuals," Driver said.
Throughout the last few weeks, Kohl's and its employees collected 500 items to donate to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee.
Driver joined the group to unpack and sort the items.
"I couldn't imagine my kids without clothes, no one wants to ever imagine that happening," he said. "So Kohl's is giving these kids and these families an opportunity to know that they do care."
Several dozen managers of local Boys & Girls Clubs picked up the items on Thursday to give to their kids.
"We service approximately 4,000 students," Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club manager Devon Reid said. "Any impact or contribution goes a long way toward our families, so we're very thankful for it."
Although Driver lives out of state, he says that doesn't change how he feels about this community.
"Someone gave me that opportunity so my goal was to always give back to the community that has given back to me," he said. "You have to be ingrained in the state of Wisconsin, that's what I told people when I left here."
Kohl's also gave the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee a $10,000 check.
