"It's just nice because it's fun to interact with people and get to talk to the people that support us all the time," he said. "You kinda get to change it up and understand how actually chaotic it is to bag groceries sometimes."

Freddy Peralta did the same at Festival Foods in Greenfield. Aaron Ashby was seen helping shoppers at Fleet Farm in Germantown. Brent Suter donated to the labor and delivery floor where he recently welcomed his second son. Jace Peterson and Rowdy Tellez surprised morning commuters by covering the tab for everyone at a Starbucks. Brandon Woodruff donated supplies to a local school.

Players spent a minimum of $500 each in gifts and/or donations while staff members also contributed funds to charities throughout the Milwaukee area. There were no specific rules attached to this event, simply encouragement for every member of the organization to come up with a creative and thoughtful way to impact lives in the community.

The kindness and appreciation for fans continues every Friday away game this season with "This One’s On Me," a player-led initiative where a different player surprises a restaurant/bar, covering the tab for the customers that evening.
