BCF to keep busy over holidays

The Brewers Community Foundation sent information this afternoon detailing some of its efforts with Hunger Task Force to help feed Milwaukee-area families this holiday season via 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.

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.
