For the fourth year, Associated Bank and Brewers Community Foundation teamed up to host various Stock the BoxTM tool drives to support Housing Resources, Inc. (HRI). Brewers fans and their families were invited to donate new or gently used tools at a tool drive on Father’s Day at Miller Park.


In addition, Briggs & Stratton Corporation and We Energies hosted a corporate tool drive for colleagues that was attended by Brewers player Corey Knebel.


“Housing Resources, Inc. is grateful to partner with organizations like Associated Bank, Brewers Community Foundation, Briggs & Stratton Corporation and We Energies,” said Trena Bond, executive director, HRI. “These partnerships make a positive difference in our community by helping us to facilitate neighborhood improvement and support homebuyers.”


The combined drives collected 716 much-needed tools for HRI’s Tool Loan Center, a low-cost solution for local homeowners who wish to do their own home repairs and maintenance. HRI also loans tools to community organizations to aid in neighborhood clean-ups, beautification or maintenance projects.


“We take pride in partnering with the Brewers Community Foundation to support the Housing Resources, Inc. Tool Loan Center,” said Erica DeQuaine, corporate events & volunteer program manager, Associated Bank. “The additional support from Briggs & Stratton Corporation and We Energies allows us to make an even deeper impact in Milwaukee neighborhoods.”
