Santa’s workshop is recreated during MSI General toy collection

In early December, MSI General looked a lot like Santa’s workshop, with toys and other gifts cheerfully taking over the design and build contractor’s offices.  As part of its True Blue campaign, the company, based in Nashotah, Wisconsin, selects a charity to support. This month, they chose Rogers, a festive tradition they began several years ago.

MSI Administrative Manager Kelly Frank has volunteered on the Foundation’s Women’s Gathering Luncheon committee for the past four years.

“Rogers Memorial Hospital holds a special place in my heart and the heart of MSI General,” said Frank. “Rogers is right in our backyard, and we know how important the work is that they do. We want to help in any way we can, and this toy drive is one of those ways.”

Frank explained that she and others have had loved ones in treatment, so they understand how hard it can be for someone you love to be away from family and friends while they receive treatment, support and healing. “These toys will hopefully help the patients at Rogers stay positive and enjoy the holidays during treatment.”

The company matches donations dollar-for-dollar, and this year, MSI employees contributed more than $400 in gifts and cash!

Thank you, MSI, for sharing your holiday spirit and generosity with us this year.

Treat yourself to some extra holiday cookies and candy canes, because your gifts are spreading cheer and joy to so many!

Please, will you help us save more lives this year than ever before? Here’s how:

Make an impact by giving an end-of-year donation to Rogers Foundation. Your gift can be made to support one or all of our lifesaving initiatives, it can be given as a tribute gift for a friend or loved one, and it can be designated to the program or regional clinic of your choice. Your donations save lives!

May is Mental Health Month! A “Give for a Better Day” coping skills drive, held in conjunction with your business, school or civic organization, is an excellent way to help patients at Rogers fill their emotional toolkits with small, but effective, therapeutic items. And, you will help start a conversation about the importance of mental health and wellness! Not sure where to begin?
