MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Bucks have established an emergency relief fund to help Fiserv Forum's part-time employees.

This emergency fund will assist part-time employees of Levy, Fiserv Forum’s food and beverage provider; ABM, the arena’s housekeeping employer; Reef Parking and SP+, the Deer District’s parking partners; and Menominee Nation Arena, home of the Bucks’ G League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd.

To date, the Bucks have donated $500,000 to part time employees. This fund will bring that total to $1 million.

“Our part-time arena staff is there for us day in and day out, and we want to be there for them during this tumultuous time,” said Bucks Senior Vice President Alex Lasry. “We are thankful for the generous financial support by every Bucks player, team management and team ownership for these deserving employees, and we will look to continue to raise additional funds for this relief effort.”

Additionally, Bucks' stars Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton donated $100K each back in March. This was followed by all Bucks' players making contributions, which were matched by the Bucks Organization.
