Corporate Central supports Christmas with the Vets.

Christmas with the Vets donations

Christmas with the Vets was started by Jeff “Doc” Dentice, a Vietnam veteran, in 1988. The event is designed to provide some holiday cheer to veterans at the Milwaukee VA Medical center and is made possible through several fundraising efforts. Corporate Central has been a proud supporter of this event since 2016 and each year strives to do more.

In 2021, in addition to monetary donations by staff used to purchase items like jackets and clothing, Corporate Central was honored to provide Doc with 315 filled Christmas stockings (a tradition that began 3 years ago) to be handed out to the Veterans at the Zoblocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee on Christmas Eve. This includes those staying in the hospital as well as those residing in the dormitories on the VA grounds.

Corporate Central hosted a virtual food drive in conjunction with Hunger Task Force. Cash donations and food purchases were collected totaling $1,807 in donations. Donations are being distributed this holiday season throughout the Milwaukee area, where they are needed most, by Hunger Task Force.

Fourth annual Addie’s Angels on Earth donation drive exceeds goal of $5,000 in donations.

Shannon Cate, Member Services Specialist, and her husband Kevin started Addie’s Angels on Earth in 2018 to celebrate and remember their daughter, Addison Marie, who was stillborn on June 3, 2016. The charity organization holds a donation drive every June to collect items and funds towards the creation of infant loss boxes at a local Milwaukee area hospital. These boxes are provided to all parents that are leaving the hospital with their babies in their hearts instead of their arms. This year, the donation drive exceeded the goal by far and brought in more than $7,000 in funds and materials!

We cannot stop the heartache of losing a baby for another family; but we can try to ease their pain and suffering. To those of you that are on this journey with us – we see you, we appreciate you, and know you are not alone!” ~ Kevin and Shannon Cate
