NOW: Taylor-Made Foundation hosts “essential needs“ giveaway for families during COVID-19 crisis

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A former NBA player, from Milwaukee, was back home this weekend helping families during the COVID-19 crisis.

Mike Taylor, and those from his Taylor-Made Foundation, held an “essential needs giveaway.”

On Saturday, June 27, and Sunday, June 28, they dropped boxes of food, masks and hand sanitizer into vehicles as people drove up.

They also focused on youth and relieving their stress during the pandemic.

Families were given “calming kits” to help with mental wellness.

Taylor says he hosted this event to let residents know that there is help in their community.

“I know everybody goes through the struggle, and that’s one thing we all can relate to. So just being a helping hand. It’s help here, resources here. We just need to know where they are," said Mike Taylor, entrepreneur and founder of the Taylor Made Foundation.

The two-day event was a collective effort, including support from the Milwaukee Hunger Task Force, the IDNA Sisters, the Sherman Phoenix and Kroger.
