APPLETON (NBC 26) — Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones and his A&A All The Way Foundation donated 200 pairs of shoes to the Boys & Girls Club of the Fox Valley on Tuesday.
The donations also came with some custom socks.
The shoe donation is part of Aaron Jones’ "Yards for Shoes" campaign, presented by Cousins Subs, which ran during the 2021-22 season. For every rushing yard Jones gained, Jones and his A&A All The Way Foundation pledged to donate a pair of shoes to a child who needs them. Jones earned 799 rushing yards.
The organization said Green Bay Packers fans funded an additional 42 pairs of shoes, totaling up to 841 pairs of donated shoes — 200 of which are going to the Boys & Girls Club of the Fox Valley.
The A&A All The Way Foundation will distribute the remaining pairs of shoes to Boys & Girls Clubs in Green Bay, Oshkosh, Washington County and Kenosha throughout the week of May 9.
