Lancaster School receives new coats for every student

Lancaster School receives new coats for every studentMilwaukee Bucks All-Star Khris Middleton, along with representatives from UnitedHealthcare, fired up students at Lancaster School this week by delivering new coats to every student on November 29. Hundreds of students received new winter coats, hats, and mittens to keep them warm as they walk to school or wait at bus stops. The gift was made through Middleton’s Dreambuilders Foundation and was supported by a $20,000 grant from UnitedHealthcare.

“Our students were thrilled to see Khris Middleton in our school,” said Lancaster Principal Valencia Carthen. “He is a role model to inspire our young people. This donation means a great deal to our students and families as another winter season in Wisconsin gets started."

Middleton is engaging in 12 Days of Khrismas this month to help children in Wisconsin and other locations in the United States. Students and staff at Lancaster were excited to be part of his holiday plans.

On behalf of Milwaukee Public Schools and the students and staff at Lancaster School, thank you, Khris Middleton and UnitedHealthcare!
