GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Packers DE Mike Daniels is making a difference in the lives of underprivileged kids.

He hosted his second annual "shop with a jock" event Tuesday night.

Daniels, along with some of his teammates took 50 kids from the Boys and Girls Club shopping for the holidays.

Each kid was also gifted a 100 dollar Walmart giftcard.

Daniels says the event aims to provide local- at risk- kids with a happier holiday season.

"You know just let them see that people care. You know what I mean, and that it's important to give back," said Daniels. "All these kids will be successful in some way shape or form in their life and we all have the ability to give back. You don't have to be a professional athlete to give back to your community."

The night wrapped with a catered dinner by Longhorn Steakhouse.

Each kid was also given a t-shirt to remember the special night.
