Associated Bank/Brewers Hosting Tool Drive at Miller Park with Free Tickets

Associated Bank and the Brewers Community Foundation will team up and host a tool collection drive at Miller Park on Tuesday, September 15. Fans can exchange new or gently-used tools for free tickets to that evening’s game. For each tool donated, fans will receive a free Loge Level ticket (up to a maximum of 8 tickets per person). The Brewers face the St. Louis Cardinals at 7:10 p.m.

All tools will be donated to Housing Resources, Inc. (HRI), a nonprofit organization in Milwaukee dedicated to helping individuals and families purchase and maintain their own homes. The HRI Tool Loan Center provides tools to local homeowners who wish to do their own repairs and maintenance on their homes and they either can’t afford to buy tools, don’t have the room to store tools, or only need them for a one-time use. HRI also loans tools to community organizations to do neighborhood clean-ups, beautification or maintenance projects. For more information about HRI and approved tools to donate, visit hri-wi.org. The approved tool list also appears below.

There will be two donation locations on the Miller Park Plaza – one near the Associated Check In Gate by the pedestrian bridge and one near Home Plate Gate .  Donations will be accepted from 4:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

“We recognize and support a need to empower homeowners to maintain their homes and improve the quality of life in our community, said Christopher Piotrowski, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Associated Bank. “This tool drive will help to replenish the HRI tool loan supply and help Milwaukee homeowners restore and maintain their homes while stabilizing and reviving neighborhoods.”
