IMG_0447Former Milwaukee Bucks player Michael Redd returned to Milwaukee on Wednesday, November 6, 2013. Redd visited the House of Peace, a Capuchin ministry, located at 1702 W. Walnut Ave., that serves Milwaukee’s working poor and chronically poor.  Michael Redd was very supportive of the House of Peace while he was a Milwaukee Buck.  He donated turkeys and holiday fixings for five years to the House of Peace Thanksgiving Food Basket distribution through the Michael Redd Foundation.  His generosity has allowed central city families the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal in their own homes.
