ATC, Milwaukee Bucks ready for sixth season of Trees for Threes
American Transmission Co., with the defending NBA champions Milwaukee Bucks, have announced our sixth consecutive season of partnership for the Trees for Threes program, which is deeply rooted in care for the environment and cause for the community.
Here’s how it works: for every 3-point shot that the Bucks score at home during the 2021-2022 season, an eligible Wisconsin school can earn a tree. That 3-point score tracker starts its uptick at 6:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday, Oct. 19, with the Bucks’ first home game against the Brooklyn Nets at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.
“Our partnership with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Trees for Threes program is a win for local schools and the environment,” said Gregory Levesque, ATC’s director of Corporate Communications, Policy and Strategy. “Trees for Threes is all about connecting students with educational opportunities that also help improve the environment. We’re proud to continue our relationship with the Bucks for the sixth consecutive season to plant more trees at Wisconsin schools.”
Last year ATC donated 549 trees to 191 schools across Wisconsin thanks to the Bucks making the most home game 3-point shots of any team in the Eastern Conference and the third-most in the NBA overall. All 191 schools received a video message from Bango, the Bucks’ mascot, and an infographic and activity sheets to share with their students. Throughout the course of this partnership, ATC has donated 2,330 trees to make Wisconsin communities and schools a greener place.
