- The Gilbert Brown Foundation made a stop in Woodruff on Sunday.
Gilbert Brown, also known as the Grave Digger, uses his Hall of Fame Packer career to give back to the Wisconsin community.
The Foundation does over 144 charities across the state and helps children by providing life skills, promoting diversity, and raising funds for kids with cancer.
"It just comes back to the point of giving back," Brown said. "It's just if you got the opportunity to help someone change somebody's life or even a smile on someone's face that's one of the most rewarding things you can do."
Brown makes sure to go all over the state of Wisconsin because he wants to give back to as many Wisconsinites as possible. He also says Packer fans are unique.
"Football around here is different than any other state," Brown said. "These people here bleed green and yellow. It's truly a thing to see. Some of the other fans are fair weather fans, depending on what quarterback came in, what player came in, and then they will want to cheer for their team."
Browns effect on the youth can be seen.
"He's done anti-bullying speeches at multiple different schools and that's been a huge impact," said Carrie Geary, an intern for the Gilbert Brown Foundation. "Kids won't really talk about their bullying but when Gilbert gets up there says 'hey I've been through it's not good you need to talk to someone,' they standup and ask questions like 'who do I talk to, this happened to me, what do I do', and it's amazing the outcome."
