Green Bay Packers' tight-end Lance Kendricks posted to Instagram Sunday showing off his cleats dedicated to the newly-opened Sherman Phoenix.
Kendricks chose the Sherman Phoenix as his cause for the "#mycausemycleats" campaign. Kendricks and the Packers donated $50,000 to the project in early September.
I am incredibly proud to represent @sherman.phoenix for this years #mycausemycleats by artist @noneabove_ “Rising from the ashes of a burned bank building, the Sherman Phoenix is a model for healing our city by generating positive economic and social return in communities of color. The Sherman Phoenix will transform the fire-damaged BMO Harris Bank building located at the eastern gateway to the Sherman Park neighborhood in Milwaukee, WI into high-quality space for small businesses-of-color offering diverse foods, wellness services and cultural activities.” I am proud to represent a cause that shows us we don’t have to look any further than our own community to build successful businesses and thrive as a city!
The Sherman Phoenix had its grand opening Nov. 30.
