“Milwaukee, you’ve welcomed the world with open arms – and as we revel in the excitement of our World Champions, the Milwaukee Bucks, we should also be proud of an accomplishment made off the court.
A lot of mail gets sent to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin, but rarely does it make everyone there stop what they’re doing.

During his first visit to the Cream City, Richardson was struck by the way Milwaukeeans greeted strangers – even the ones wearing orange and blue.
“I just thought back to how I could maybe do my part to thank the people of Milwaukee,” said Richardson.
That gets us to the piece of mail we mentioned above – a note from Richardson to Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin:
“Hello. I am a Phoenix Suns fan who flew up from Richmond, VA to Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Sunday and was so touched by the kindness and hospitality of the people of Milwaukee that I wanted to contribute in their honor to help the city. Go Suns, but thank you Milwaukee for your incredible generosity!”
