Donald Driver honors those who give back to their community

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Packers legend Donald Driver is visiting Milwaukee for the weekend, taking time to honor the people and organizations who give back to their communities.

The Driven to Achieve Awards, sponsored by the Donald Driver Foundation, will be held Saturday evening, March 29th at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee.

Driver met with some of the big winners Friday, and talked about his own efforts to give back. He says it's important to always remember where you came from. Driver got emotional when telling the group he knows firsthand what it's like to live through hardships.

"When you see these things it makes you fight and continue to fight so that you can give them an opportunity. Someone gave me an opportunity-- and now it's time for me to do that for someone else. And if I don't do that, then I feel like I'm wasting my time on this earth," said Driver.

The evening is set to include dinner, a live auction and a private concert by Gladys Knight. Tickets for the event are sold out.
