Bucks & Sargento Team Up for Tipoff for Homes

The Milwaukee Bucks and Wisconsin-based Sargento Foods Inc. are teaming up during the 2019-20 season to support Habitat for Humanity in Milwaukee with the “Tipoff for Homes” initiative. For every tipoff the Bucks win throughout the upcoming regular season, Sargento will donate $500 to Habitat for Humanity.
