GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Local high school bands came together at Lambeau Field earlier Saturday, all for a great cause.

The Stock the Box for Hunger food drive wrapped up Saturday, as the bands spent the last week collecting canned food.

The bands were out performing and asking for donations in a last-minute push to see which band could collect the most food.

"It's really neat, it's, it's a lot of preparation and time, like getting all the promotional materials ready for people and, um, getting everything organized, but it's really worth it to know that we're helping people in need, so it's really awesome and really great for the kids," said Danielle Scherer, Green Bay West High School band director.

Former Green Bay Packer LeRoy Butler was also on hand to sign autographs and take pictures with people.
