Xiong Family

27 year old Josh Xiong, of Onalaska, went missing last week during a late night fishing trip, as he did often.  Unfortunately, the search has turned into a rescue mission, and they have not found Josh yet.  Josh has two young children, ages 6 and 7.

Josh’s family has set up an account at Merchants bank under “Joshua Hli Xiong Memorial Fund” in La Crescent MN.    If you would like to donate to the Xiong family, send your monetary donations directly to Merchants Bank located at 316 Main Street, La Crescent, MN 55947.

Anything would be appreciated.  The family is praying for closure, and are making plans to care for Josh’s two children.  More info, click here!

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!


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)
