GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Ten volunteers were honored by the Packers Friday for making a difference in their communities with a Packers Give Back Award.

Each of the ten were presented the award and a $2,000 grant for the nonprofit organization they have worked with.

One of those recognized, Rev. Ken DeGroot, says he's thankful and hopes it will inspire more to volunteer, "It means a lot to the organization. I feel sort of like the quarterback, like he's the star, and all of my offensive line; try to open the holes or something which I feel the same way about the cooperation of so many people who are so interested in the welfare of the Hispanic people."

Other recipients include Becky Fickel with St. Vincent de Paul in Appleton, DuWayne Wieck with the American Legion Post in Plymouth and Linda Haag of Green Bay for Bethesda Lutheran Communities Inc. in Watertown.
