As Aaron Jones contemplates free agency after the playoffs, he's still giving back with his brother with the Aaron and Alvin Jones All the Way Foundation.

"Children is one of the things that touched me and my brother," Aaron Jones says. "You know, you make some of our your relationships playing and things like that."

Of course, a football camp is one way the Packers running back gives back, but there's more.
"We kind of was doing it before, we were giving back before we started the foundation. But we didn't have our mind set on exactly where we wanted to put the main focus at. And after doing a couple things, sitting down and talking we decided the children who we want to help and affect," Jones says.

There's also been a turkey give away at Thanksgiving and a bike giveaway for kids.

"I've been principal for a day at the school," Jones says. "And just to walk in there and some of the kids tell you this is my first ever bike, or you bought my brother a bike last Christmas through the bike giveaway and we were sharing a bike. And through the bike giveaway this year, I got my own bike and now, we both have our own bikes and if it wasn't for us, they would never have a bike."

The foundation especially helps kids in El Paso, Texas, which is where Jones is from, and also kids in Milwaukee.
