joshua-xiong.jpgOn the morning of November 9th 2014, a family was preparing themselves for the unimaginable loss of a loving boyfriend, devoted father, beloved son, brother and dear friend, Joshua Hli Xiong.   Josh had gone missing while out fishing the night before.  Numerous search crews, family members and friends all gathered at Lock & Dam #7 and worked together in the search to locate Josh.  While they maintain immense hope of his return home, they face the inevitable burden of reality.

Josh was just 27 years old and leaves behind a devoted loving girlfriend, Maly Vue and his two beautiful children Maddix, age 7 and Alexis, age 6. Josh loved life and fishing was his passion. He was a jokester, he was vibrant, he was kind and he was an amazing father to his two children. He was loved by so many. His family and friends feel the responsibility to help care and provide for this family, in his absence and, in their time of great need.  They are asking for your help, in achieving this goal.

ZCare, along with Valley View Mall, supports local organizations, families, and more, in the La Crosse and surrounding area. It is very heart warming when people in our community are generous, and give back to ZCare! Special thanks to Jenni Seberg, Caleb Roberts, and Sara Schneider (students at Western Technical College). As part of their Management Accounting Project, they raised funds for ZCare! They dropped off a generous donation of $260.00! Thank you for thinking of us, and for giving back to the community! We hope you get an A+ on your presentation!

THANK YOU Z-CARE

May 1st, 2013

On behalf of the Move Out Sustainability Team, I want to extend the biggest possible “Thank You” to you, Marco, and the whole ZCare/Z93 family.

Without your help, Dumpster Diversion would not have been nearly as successful as it was, and IT WAS!  The student neighborhoods were more clean than ever.

All together we gathered five, 40 yard dumpsters worth of stuff that would have ended up on curbs and boulevards of La Crosse (things like dirty damage couches and mattresses/box frames, and old furniture), plus a semi and a half of donations to Goodwill (things like clothes, nice furniture of all kinds, and a random assortment of other things), and roughly two tons of recyled TVs and other electronics.

Thank you, so very much, for working with us this year and we look forward to building on this success in the future.  Our community owes you all an incredible debt of gratitude.

Sincerely, Andrew Londre (UW-La Crosse Senior)

Helping the Norma J. Vinger Center For Breast Care

December 4th, 2012

Every adult is at risk for breast cancer.  More than 200,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed each year and men can be at risk as well. Despite advances made in breast cancer treatment, early detection remains the best way to fight the disease.  The model of care used at the Norma J. Vinger Center for Breast Care, located in Gundersen Lutheran, surrounds the patient with a team of specialists, using a coordinated approach that results in fast diagnosis and a streamlined pathway through treatment.  Click here to learn more.

In November, Z93 hosted the 2nd Annual Divafest which is a celebration for women.  It is a fun night of shopping, wine tasting, entertainment, and more!  Over 800 women attended Divafest at the Radisson Ballroom, La Crosse.  With your generosity, we were able to donate $2,000 to the Norma J. Vinger Center for Breast Care.  The donation included a portion of the ticket sales from Divafest, along with a matched donation from ZCare.  Thank you for your contribution, and we hope to see you again next year at Divafest!  And hopefully, we can raise even more money to help those affected by Breast Cancer!

Thank You, Dr. Gavin and Valley Dental!
