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!

Thank You from Nicole Cooksey

I wanted to thank Z Care for all the great things that is does for this community.  Specifically, I want to thank you for the donation we received in the form of gas cards at Christmas time last year.  Our daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia almost a year ago.  Ever since then her grandparents, who live in Texas, have been trying to find a way to see her to make sure with their own eyes that she is okay and to give her lots of “grandma and grandpa” hugs and kisses.  Due to their own health issues they were not able to make it up here this year so we decided that if Raylin’s health permitted it, we would visit them in Texas at Christmas time.  With the doctor’s okay and the gift of the gas cards, we were able to go to Texas and spend time with them.  It was an awesome vacation for us as it allowed us to take our minds off of all the dr. appointments and clinic trips lately.  It was awesome for Raylin’s grandparents because they finally got to see her in person since her diagnosis and reassure themselves that in the long run she’ll be okay.  For that, I thank you.  Sincerely, 

Nicole Cooksey
