The Milwaukee Bucks partnered with United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County to distribute new books to summer school students at Franklin Pierce Elementary School July 1st.
Bango, the Milwaukee Bucks mascot, made a surprise visit to hand out books to 3rd and 4th graders as part of United Way’s Summer Reading Partnership.
The students were not only were given books, but also had the opportunity to meet and take pictures with Bango.
The goal of United Way’s Summer Reading Partnership is to have every child read 6 age-appropriate books by the end of summer.
