Two noted community institutions held events exemplifying the giving holiday spirit this time of year generates. Green Bay Packer Wide Receiver Donald Driver took time out from signing copies of his new book, “Quickie Goes to the Big Game,” to have his picture taken with Packer fans and representatives of Goodwill Industries like Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson (pictured above left with Driver), the new senior vice president of Mission services for the non-profit. Driver was signing copies of his book at the Wauwatosa Goodwill Store and Donation Center, the proceeds of which will benefit both Goodwill Industries and The Donald Driver Foundation. The House of Peace was one of seven area organizations to receive a donation from Pick ʻn Save and the Roundyʼs Foundation totalling nearly $45,000. Pictured above right is Vivian King, Roundyʼs director of public affairs, who presented a oversized replica of the $5,000 in gift cards they will give to the House of Peace to Jim Van Hoven, development director for that outreach organization. The presentations were part of a Community Expo that was held at the Pick ʻn Save store located on Good Hope Road in Milwaukee. The expo was designed to support and raise awareness for local organizations dedicated to fighting hunger and domestic violence. (Photo by Yvonne Kemp)
