GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Green Bay Packers star Charles Woodson says he's donating $100,000 to the Red Cross to assist families hurt by superstorm Sandy in recent days.
He says he's grateful for the sense of community that allowed the Packers to thrive in Green Bay, and he wants to give back to other similar communities that are hurting.
Woodson made his comments Thursday at the Austin Straubel International Airport, at a Democratic rally ahead of a campaign stop by President Barack Obama.17233066

Also appearing at the rally were U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl, Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin and former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold.
