State Donates $8800 to Holiday Adopt-a-Family
In the spirit of the season, State continued its holiday tradition of Adopt-a-Family by donating $8,800 to provide gifts and other holiday trimmings to area families.
In past years, State’s team has collected gifts to donate but with most team members currently working remote, State shifted to an online fundraiser. The generosity of State’s team members was matched by the company to enable donations to be made to:
House of Mercy – Beloit, WI
DAIS – Madison, WI
Hope House – Milwaukee, WI
St. Peter’s Catholic Church – Geneva, IL
After receiving State’s gift, Tammie King-Johnson from House of Mercy said, “COVID-19 has created a pandemic on top of what was already an epidemic for the homeless. State Collection Services funds will support the homeless in two ways this holiday season. First to purchase Christmas gifts for our Holiday Adopt-a-Family program and secondly to provide emergency motel vouchers for two families with small children who were living in their cars.”
St. Peter’s shared that gifts were given to 26 area families in need.
“I am proud of the generosity of our team and grateful we are able to help families in need, especially during this turbulent time,” said Tim Haag, State’s president. “Our team strives to make a difference in the lives of our clients and their patients every day. This is another example of our team’s compassionate spirit and desire to help others in our communities.”
