Milwaukee, November 23, 2020 — Neighborhood House of Milwaukee

When Pat Connaughton, joined the Milwaukee Bucks organization, he also connected with the Bucks Foundation. He sought their assistance to help him find ways his With Us Foundation could support and encourage Milwaukee area youth.

Through the Bucks Foundation, Connaughton learned about Neighborhood House of Milwaukee (NH) when they submitted a request to the Bucks Foundation. That eventually turned into a With Us grant that is refurbishing their 1967 gym. Now, the Bucks foundation is helping to top off the project.

The first site visit involved Connaughton, Bucks Foundation Executive Director, Arvind Gopalratnam and With Us Foundation, Development Manager, Joe Staton. The two foundations made it clear this was more than a one-time project. They also seek to create and deepen relationships with youth who live in underserved areas.

The Milwaukee Bucks Foundation and Daktronics are gifting NH’s new gym with a new Daktronics scoreboard.

Daktronics is a partner of the Milwaukee Bucks and was an integral part in the development of the Fiserv Forum’s digital displays and fan experience.

The scoreboard will be installed on Wednesday, November 25th between 3pm-4:30pm.

When the COVID pandemic finally subsides and it is safe for all, both organizations hope to deepen programs and opportunities for Neighborhood House’s youth.
