Brett, Deanna Favre still donate to Wisconsin charities

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - It's been six years since Brett Favre played for the Green Bay Packers -- but he and his wife Deanna still donate to a bunch of worthy causes in Wisconsin. 

The "Favre 4 Hope" foundation said Monday it donated $180,000 to charitable groups this year both in the Badger State, and in Favre's home state of Mississippi. 

The Wisconsin charities included Ribbon of Hope, the Rawhide boys' ranch at New London, and the Brett and Deanna Favre Miracle League in Green Bay. 

The Favres' donations in Mississippi include Special Olympics and Make-a-Wish, and the athletic scholarship fund at Brett Favre's college alma mater at Southern Mississippi. 

Favre has been retired from the NFL for three seasons. He last played for the Packers in 2007.
