MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks on Monday, December 18th celebrated the season of giving by taking some students shopping.

Malcolm Brogdon, Thon Maker and Jabari Parker participated in the “Shop with the Bucks” event, helping Milwaukee-area students with their Christmas shopping.

Each student was provided with a $300 Kohl’s gift card, and the kids also got to have dinner with the players.


“It was a blessing going shopping with the Bucks. Inspirational. Inspirational. Just having fun,” said Johnathan Jacobs, seventh-grader.

“It’s important because they watch us every single time and now they finally get a chance to interact with us. They really enjoy that time,” Thon Maker said.

After they were done shopping, the Bucks took the kids to Foot Locker and let them each pick out a pair of shoes.
