Thanksgiving Drive-Thru Food Drive in Full Swing at Miller Park
Today, Brewers Community Foundation is teaming up with Hunger Task Force and CBS 58 to help feed Milwaukee-area families in need by hosting the “Thanksgiving Drive Thru Food Drive” at Miller Park.
The drive has been in full swing since 4:30 a.m. this morning with lots of donations pouring in.
And, those who showed up not too long ago got a little surprise:
Ryan Braun came in last night from his offseason home in California to be here this morning to assist with the food collection and greet those fans making a donation.
“It is always nice to see people supporting these types of events, especially this time of year. It’s so important,” he said.
The slugger, who also met with media this morning, says he is enjoying spending his offseason with his baby girl, Celine Elysse, who was born in September. The new dad is looking forward to many of her “firsts,” including her first Thanksgiving tomorrow.
Brewers Bullpen Catcher and Racine native Marcus Hanel was also out there lending a helping hand today, on the heels of his successful coat drive last week, as were the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages and Bernie Brewer:
Food can be dropped off at Helfaer Field at Miller Park tonight until 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.
