Milwaukee Bucks’ 3-pointers greening up Wisconsin schools
The Milwaukee Bucks are halfway through the 2018-19 season, and their current record has the Bucks stampeding to the top of the Eastern conference. Their 3-point shots are on the rise too, having scored 316 at home thus far.
“As an organization, I think 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 third consecutive year ATC and the Bucks have teamed up for Trees for Threes. During the 2016-17 season, ATC awarded 355 trees, and last season we awarded 343 trees to 83 schools across our service area. To date, over 100 schools have applied for the program and the number keeps rising – along with the Buck’s 3-pointers.
“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.
