MADISON (WKOW) — Three former Badger football players are making donations to the Waukesha Community Fund. 

Derek Watt, Joe Schobert and Kevin Zeitler made the joint announcement on Twitter Tuesday evening. 

"In light of the recent tragic events at the Waukesha Christmas Parade on November 21, 2021, we want our community to know that we see them, love them, and we're here for them. Our primary goal is to have the focus remain on the families who were directly impacted by last weekend's tragedy and to help make sure any financial burdens are taken care of," the statement reads. 

The trio, who grew up in the area, decided the best way to assist with funeral and medical expenses was to donate to the Community Fund, which was set up by the United Way and Waukesha County Community Foundation.
