Back To School Drives and Pies at Steinhafels

It’s back to school season! While it’s a fun time for some… for others, it’s a challenging time emotionally and financially. A simple school supply list can cost parents hundreds of dollars. It can also be a hard time for non-traditional and adult students who are heading back to school, or pursuing a new career.

We are so proud that our employees have taken it upon themselves to hold various back to school drives over the years, to help those who are struggling at this time.

COTS Adult Back to School donation Appleton1 Aug 2017

The Appleton team once again decided to collect items for COTS, a transitional shelter helping individuals experiencing homelessness. The goal is to end homelessness by helping people transition to self-sufficiency and independent living. They collected for adults that are not only working, but pursuing further education.

In addition, our Waukesha Sales, Corporate, and Warehouse teams have worked together to collect supplies for a local grassroots effort, Ms. Cynthia’s Back to School Bash, which helps supply children in Milwaukee’s inner city with book bags and supplies for the coming year.

This year, we had a little extra fun with this particular donation collection. Check out this VIDEO from our Waukesha Store’s pie-in-the-face contest. All money from tickets sold went towards school supplies.

Having fun AND raising money for a good cause. This is why we love our employees so much!!

**Note for employees: Please let Katie in Corporate Store Sales or Susanne in Appleton know if you’d still like to make a last minute donation!!

It’s especially awesome when the fun is for a good cause!

Thanks to our Waukesha Sales Associates Katie Wolf-Daniel and Veronica Hilgart for organizing today’s “Pie in the Face” contest.

For $1, employees were entered in a raffle to throw a pie at one of their beloved employees (several of them “higher level” employees ;)).

The victims: John Haas, Maddie Wray, Fred Schweinert, Jimmy Eagle, Lynda Malmberg, Mike Pizzala, and Ben Schroeder.

All of the money will go towards “Miss Cynthia’s Back To School Bash.” This is the Corporate store’s 2nd year taking part in this school supply drive, which helps kids in Milwaukee’s inner city. (The bash is Saturday, August 26 at the 2500 block of N. 38th Street if anyone would like to attend!)

Here’s a few comments from some of the good sports who took part.

John Haas: I felt I’d give the opportunity for one of my staff to get me… and they eagerly participated.

Jimmy Eagle: I did it for a good cause for charity, and most of all to compete with Haas.

Maddie Wray: All for a good laugh on a Friday afternoon… cuz that’s how we roll at Steinhafels!

The pictures say it all…
