Community Involvement is Close to Our Hearts

At Tricom, we are an active member of the community and believe strongly in the power of giving. In 2008, our president and CEO, Julie Ann Blazei, as well as Tricom as a company, was recognized by the Association of Fundraising Professionals at their 30th Annual Partners in Philanthropy Awards Luncheon for Tricom's work with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

By hosting events including clothing and food drives, auctions, car washes, bowling, and even pie-throwing contests, Tricom's employees have raised money to support Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Alzheimer's Association, American Diabetes Association, Milwaukee Women's Shelter, St. Vincent De Paul Society, the VA Medical Center and the International Red Cross. Tricom employees have also donated clothes, food and other needed items to Operation Iraqi Children and to our troops in Iraq.

In addition to donations, once every quarter a rotating group of employees volunteer and serve at the St. Vincent De Paul Society meal program in Milwaukee.

At the heart of this spirit of service are our employees. In addition to the organizations above, they go above and beyond to support the following causes:

 

Briggs & Al's Run & Walk for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin

Tricom has been an active supporter of Briggs & Al's Run & Walk for Children's Hospital since our first company team participated in 1996. Since then, we've continued to increase our support and participation in the event, and for the last several years have been one of the top corporate sponsors.

Over the years, Tricom has raised over $700,000 for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, not just through their annual walk / run, but also through other fundraising events we've hosted throughout the year.

In 2014, Tricom and Logger's Park began Cheers For Children's, a fun-filled, family day that includes softball and volleyball tournaments, silent auction, live music, refreshments and more. In the last two years of the event, we've raised over $11,000 for Children's Hospital.

We had so much fun that we're doing it again for our third year! Join us on Saturday, August 6th, 9 am – 10 pm, for more softball and volleyball tournament action, music, entertainment and more! For more information about the event, or to donate, please click on the button to the left.

This year’s walk / run is Saturday, September 17. If you’re interested in making a donation to or joining the Tricom 2016 Briggs & Al’s Run & Walk team, Tricom will match dollar for dollar each pledge up to $20,000 as well as donate $10 for each person registered to our team.

Go Red For Women

Tricom is also passionate about health, which is why we have actively participated in the Go Red for Women day for the last several years. Employees show their support by wearing red on this day. In honor of the event, Tricom has raised over $500.00 for the American Heart Association through various lunches and raffles. We've also hosted healthy breakfasts and provided staff with healthy snacks and desserts. As another sign of commitment to a healthy lifestyle, Tricom provided staff with heart healthy recipes.  
 
Season Of Giving
 
Tricom's Season of Giving Team also focuses on the community through our employee's efforts to raise money for a wide variety of charities. The team works with the Volunteer Center of Greater Milwaukee to receive holiday gift tags for children and seniors that employees then raise money to fulfill. The Volunteer Center of Greater Milwaukee works with numerous organizations. In the past years, Tricom has helped the Boys and Girls Club, Penfield's Children Center, Hickman Academy Prep School, Hands of Faith Ministry, La Casa de Esperanza, and Mary McCloud Bethune Academy, Bethesda Senior Center, Volunteers of America –Wisconsin, and Community Care – Prospect. Employees have even had the privilege to drop gifts off and participate in their holiday party.
