Email: iTunes Gift Cards

May 1st, 2013

Our ZCare Team received this email:

My name is Jenni and I am from the G-E-T High School in Galesville. I was wondering where Z93 gets their $10 itunes gift cards from? I am working on a project for a student with disabilities and I need a $10 itunes gift card. I have called everywhere and can only find $15 cards. Can you help with this?

We were happy to help Jenni with her project! ZCare sponsored the iTunes gift card for Jenni, and the student!  Jenni later sent an email that read:

I want to thank you for doing this. This student will be very excited to hear where his card from. Thank you to the whole Z93 crew for always being awesome!

Thank You!

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!

Volunteers Needed for Mobile Meals

November 11th, 2012

Mobile Meals is a non-profit organization.  A United Way Partner Agency.  They deliver meals to elderly and disabled people in the city limits of La Crosse.  About 2 months ago, they had to open up a new route because of the need to feed more people.  And, in the past 2 months, they have had people on a waiting list to receive meals as well.  Fortunately, they have a wonderful and dedicated group of volunteers, and some have been delivering for many years.  Unfortunately, they have lost some volunteers for 2013 and are in need of volunteers.  They are in need of weekly lunch time volunteer drivers.  Here is the info:

  • Looking for students who may need some volunteer hours.  (Must be accompanied by an adult).
  • Organizations, Churches, Businesses, and individuals or families.  If everyone could take at least one week or more, it would be great to cover their 2 open routes for the entire 2013 year.
  • Pick up time 11:00 am
  • Routes take about 1 1/2 hours
  • Prefer 18 years and up unless accompanied by an adult.
  • Max stops are 16.
  • Need scheduled drivers and emergency drivers.
  • Deliver 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
