This baseball season, Associated Bank and the Brewers Community Foundation teamed up to benefit Housing Resources, Inc. (HRI), a nonprofit organization that provides support to low to moderate-income homeowners and homebuyers in the Milwaukee community.
Through a program called “Hits for Homes,” $250 was donated to HRI for every Brewers hit recorded during home games throughout the season. Each donation was tallied on a large Associated Bank LED screen located above the Associated Check Deck seating area in left-centerfield. At the end of the season, a total donation of $100,000 was presented to HRI, which will be used to provide essential home repair grants to qualified homeowners in order to help stabilize and revive neighborhoods
In addition to financial contributions, Associated Bank and the Milwaukee Brewers Community Foundation partnered to conduct a tool drive at Miller Park on September 15 to replenish the HRI Tool Loan supply. Baseball fans were invited to donate new or gently used tools in exchange for free tickets to that evening’s Brewers game. In sum, the tool drive raised 157 tools for HRI’s Tool Loan Center in Milwaukee to help Milwaukee homeowners restore and maintain their homes.
“Associated Bank is a proud member of the Milwaukee community, and our partnership with the Brewers Community Foundation offered an opportunity to enhance our collective giving and 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.
Congratulations Associated Bank!
