Our Community

June and July were designated as “Corporate Central Summer Camp.” A huge “Thank You” goes out to our IT, HR and Compliance teams for putting together fun, creative and memorable summer camp activities!

We had a wonderful time participating in activities and competing with each other (all in pure fun of course!) and to top it all off we were able to give back by creating 1,000 para-cord bracelets for Operation Gratitude. The bracelets were included in care packages for our troops overseas.

Staff participated in “theme” work days including Graphic T-shirt Day (above) and Patriotic Day (below). 

There were also quite a few “tournaments” held at Summer Camp to keep the Corporate Central team on its toes. Congrats to John Hickey, VP Investments for claiming the "Baggo" Champion title!

Staff took some Saturday free time and went bowling together.  It was a great chance for employees to get together outside of work and bring their families.  Many smiles and laughs were shared during the afternoon of fun.

As part of our charitable initiatives in the month of May, Corporate Central set up a donation box for employees to drop off pet supplies that are in need at the Waukesha county shelter. HAWS (Humane Animal Welfare Society) is an "open admissions" shelter meaning they accept animals regardless of their age, breed, and health.  Learn more about HAWS...

St. Patrick's Day is a day of Shenanigans so what a perfect day for us to be silly! Staff were encouraged to bust out their green apparel, whether it be crazy wigs and hats to overalls and obnoxious socks, all styles were welcome.

Each staff member was asked to decorate a shamrock or "Lucky Charm" and help decorate the office to get us all in the St. Patty's day spirit. We ate Lucky Charms for breakfast and enjoyed Shamrock Shakes for an afternoon treat.

We also collected toy donations through the month of March to benefit children currently staying in Children's Hospital. We were very pleased to see the nicely decorated green bin in our lobby filled with generous donations!

Each staff member decorated a stocking and completed a short questionnaire to put inside. Staff had to guess who's stocking was who's based on how the stocking was decorated and how they answered the questions.

We also had collection barrels placed in our lobby to support the Holiday Food Drive to benefit Feeding America - Southeast WI. All food collected was distributed to food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, day care centers, and youth and senior programs to feed those in need this Holiday Season.

The Milwaukee Marine's 'Toys for Tots' campaign is organized by the 2nd Battalion 24th Marines, along with the Milwaukee and Waukesha Salvation Armies, helping thousands of children in the Milwaukee/Waukesha area to receive toys for Christmas.

The primary goal of 'Toys for Tots' is to deliver a new toy at Christmas, as a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will help assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. Their objective is to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable resources - our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

Corporate Central staff pulled together and placed numerous children's gifts under our lobby Christmas tree!

Each staff member was asked to bring in a baby picture of themselves and also create a hand turkey. The baby faces were attached to the turkeys and then all staff participated in a guess who's who game. Check out John, Kyle, and Antone creating their turkeys!

In honor of Veterans Day, Corporate Central also partnered with an event called Christmas with the Vets. A Vietnam veteran by the name of Jeff (Doc) Dentice started this event back in 1988 in order to help bring Christmas to Milwaukee area veterans, some of which are homeless. Jeff was a medic in the war which is where he got the nickname of Doc. When he first started Christmas with the Vets it was a very small gathering and has grown each year after. Doc relies solely on the donations of others to collect items to distribute at their annual event. This year Corporate Central helped them with their donations by collecting contributions throughout the month of November.

 

Corporate Central staff participated in a Corporate pumpkin decorating activity to spruce up the office with a little October flair. See some of our creations above!

We also held a book drive throughout the month of October to help fill the bookshelves for the Next Door Books for Kids program. The Next Door's Books for Kids program was established in 1990 with the hope that all children in Milwaukee's central city, regardless of family income or education levels, could have books to call their own.

Corporate Central staff celebrated the kickoff of the football season by hosting a tailgate party on Friday, September 9 for all employees.  Staff were encouraged to wear their favorite teams' shirts or colors and participate in some fun games and activities.  During the party, staff also collected non-perishable food items in coolers that were later donated to the New Berlin Food Pantry.
