BCF Joins Hunger Task Force to Help Feed Milwaukee this Holiday Season
Brewers Community Foundation is teaming up with Hunger Task Force to help feed Milwaukee-area families this holiday season with a number of events and opportunities.
The Thanksgiving week will begin with the WISN 12 Food For Families Phone Bank on Tuesday, November 26. A number of Brewers staff will work the phones, collecting donations that will benefit Hunger Task Force.
MILLER PARK FOOD DRIVE
In addition, Brewers Community Foundation, Hunger Task Force and CBS 58 will host a food drive at Miller Park on Wednesday, November 27. Food can be dropped off at Helfaer Field at Miller Park on November 27 between 4:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Each vehicle stopping by to donate food items will receive a Brewers bobblehead, a gift bag and other items while supplies last. A number of Brewers special guests and CBS 58 News Team members will be on hand throughout the day to collect donations.
In a unique twist for fans and “art collectors” alike, Brewers Community Foundation is helping raise money for the Hunger Task Force through an online auction of player-designed “turkey hands.” Select Brewers players put their creative talents to work on the traditional Thanksgiving art project of hand-drawn “turkey hands,” which will be revealed on the Brewers social media platforms beginning on Monday.
The framed, original designs will be auctioned off on Brewers.com beginning November 21 at 5 p.m. CT. The auction will conclude on Sunday, December 1 at 11:59 p.m. CT.
