Packers guard Daryn Colledge, along with teammates David Clowney, Will Blackmon, Ryan Grant, James Jones, Frank Walker and Jason Spitz, and volunteers from The Home Depot, organizers from the non-profit organization KaBOOM! and members of the local community joined forces Tuesday, Sept. 11, to completely refurbish the football practice field at Green Bay West High School.
The field refurbishment is part of The Home Depot-NFL Neighborhood MVP program that recognizes and celebrates NFL players for their commitment to giving back to their local communities. Colledge was one of 17 players selected league-wide for his support of Pop Warner youth football, the Edgar Bennett Foundation for children with cancer, and the Donald Driver Foundation helping homeless mothers. Colledge is also heavily involved in local Salvation Army initiatives and the Toys for Tots program. The Home Depot developed the NFL Neighborhood MVP program as part of its ongoing commitment to give back to the communities its associates live and work in.
Improvements to Green Bay West High School's practice football field will provide future learning opportunities not only for the football team, but for the entire school of more than 1,200 students through physical education courses and other academic programs. The new field would be welcomed as a renewed green space for the students, community and staff.
