Greening Wisconsin schools with Milwaukee Bucks’ 3-pointers
The Milwaukee Bucks are halfway through the 2019-20 season, and their current record has the Bucks leaping to the top of the Eastern conference. Their 3-point shots are on the rise too, having scored 327 at home thus far (11 more than this time last year).
“At ATC, we watch the Bucks home games a little differently than other fans,” said ATC Director of Corporate Communications, Anne Spaltholz. “For every 3-point shot they make, we see a tree that will be donated to a Wisconsin school.”
This is the fourth consecutive year ATC and the Bucks have teamed up for Trees for Threes. During the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, ATC awarded 355 and 343 trees, respectively. Last year ATC donated 573 trees to more than 100 schools across Wisconsin – the fourth most three-pointers made by any team at home in NBA history.
“We care about the communities we serve, and this is an incredible partnership because it directly benefits children and schools in those communities,” said Spaltholz.
