Milwaukee Bucks and Johnson Controls Extend Grants for 3 Additional Years

  1. Updates

Earlier this year the Milwaukee Bucks and Johnson Controls furthered their commitment to Playworks by extending their annual grant for an additional three years.

In 2017, the Bucks and Johnson Controls partnered to provide funds for a multi-sport complex at Browning Elementary School, which is located in Milwaukee’s Westlawn neighborhood. At that time, they also committed to providing annual grants to Playworks for three years to utilize the outdoor facility. This announcement is the extension of that commitment for an additional three years.

The multi-sport complex includes six basketball courts, a futsal court, a soccer field, and additional recreation space all contained within a 200-meter track. It was configured to allow flexibility for use of other sports, such as volleyball and tennis, and is well lit to provide a safe space for recreation during evening hours.
