Amazing Moments

Giving back to your community always feels good, but sometimes it feels downright amazing. Recently I experienced three amazing moments.

American Family Children’s Hospital

First, was the Topping Out Ceremony for the American Family Children’s Hospital expansion. My wife Patti and I attended this ceremony where a small balsam fir on a construction beam was attached to the crane and raised to American Family Children’s Hospital’s eighth floor, “topping out” the hospital’s two-floor expansion which will soon house 26 acute care beds, two new operating rooms, a state-of-the-art pediatric hybrid catheterization interventional radiology laboratory, and a pediatric imaging suite. From December 1, 2012 through February 28, 2013 the hospital raised $1.05 million for this project. Matching funds from hospital donors added up to a total impact of $2.09 million toward the children’s hospital expansion.

Meriter Hospital

The second amazing experience was the release of our Works of Wonder banner at Meriter Hospital. These banners recognize those who give of their time, talent, and resources to Meriter. In addition to our monetary support donated through TASC Cares, the charitable arm of our organization, TASC has gifted Meriter five years of free administrative services for flexible spending accounts in order to fund a substantial contribution to the Meriter Foundation. Our donation is designed to launch a new era in women’s health services for generations of women in south central Wisconsin. TASC also serves as a resource for human resources leadership regarding healthcare-related benefits design and service.

Food for Kidz

As part of our annual company meeting, on Friday, March 22, about 370 TASC employees joined forces with Food for Kidz at the Monona Terrace in Madison to assemble meals for hungry children. In just over an hour, the group assembled 460 boxes of food, which adds up to nearly 100,000 meals. Thirty percent of the food packaged by TASC is distributed to food pantries in Dane County through Community Action Coalition (CAC) for South Central Wisconsin; 30 percent goes to food pantries across the United States; and the remaining 40 percent will be distributed overseas.

We are already planning more amazing moments like these in TASC’s future.
