Former Green Bay Packer Donald Driver coming to a school in Washington County

May 10, 2019 – West Bend, WI – It looks like former Green Bay Packer Donald Driver will be paying a visit to students in West Bend.

The all-time leading wide receiver for the green and gold is working in cooperation with Goodwill on an annual Pack’er Up Donation Challenge.


This year’s event encouraged families to:

Clean out your closets and go to any participating Goodwill Store & Donation Center between Monday, April 1 and  Tuesday, April 30, 2019. Simply indicate your school name, city and number of items donated on the slip provided to you by the Goodwill Donation Attendant, and the school with the greatest number of items donated will receive a visit from Donald Driver. Open to elementary and middle schools in the southeastern Wisconsin territory only.

The final numbers are in and the posted winning school is below.

Holy Angels School

Holy Angels principal Mike Sternig confirmed Driver will be coming to school later this month.

The students are excited and it’s been said “it’s the worst kept secret in West Bend.”

Donald Driver is a spokesman for Goodwill. During past school visits in Wisconsin the Packer Hall of Famer reads to students from one of the three children’s books he’s written.

Driver played for the Packers for 14 years and later took home the trophy on Dancing with the Stars.

Early word his arrival is expected to be May 20.
