GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Brown County Board this week will honor Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver for his community contributions.

The board will recognize the Packers' all-time leading receiver for his work with The Donald Driver Foundation, which deals with issues related to homelessness and education. Driver has also hosted the annual charity softball game with Packers players.

Supervisor Bernie Erickson tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette (http://gbpg.net/TV8iXY ) Driver has given of himself, his money and is a fan favorite, so it's a great opportunity to honor him while he's still in Green Bay.

Driver will be 38 next month and had only a bit role in the offense after restructuring the final year of his contract. County officials say the event is on Driver's schedule, but that's not a guarantee he will attend Wednesday.
