Packers Woodson Pledges $100,000 to Sandy ReliefSubmitted: 11/01/2012
GREEN BAY - 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.

Woodson praised Obama for setting politics aside to help with storm relief. He noted that Obama teamed up with Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to tour affected areas.

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