Jennings, Sanders, Gallon and Bango have the task of delivering over 1,400 school supply packs that were donated by the Milwaukee Bucks. Included in the school supply packs are binders, folders, paper, pens, pencils and colored pencils. The trio of Bucks players will also talk to the children about the importance of staying in school and making good choices.
