As part of their Management Accounting Project, they raised funds for ZCare! They dropped off a generous donation of $260.00! Thank you for thinking of us, and for giving back to the community! We hope you get an A+ on your presentation!
Our ZCare Team received this email:
My name is Jenni and I am from the G-E-T High School in Galesville. I was wondering where Z93 gets their $10 itunes gift cards from? I am working on a project for a student with disabilities and I need a $10 itunes gift card. I have called everywhere and can only find $15 cards. Can you help with this?
We were happy to help Jenni with her project! ZCare sponsored the iTunes gift card for Jenni, and the student! Jenni later sent an email that read:
I want to thank you for doing this. This student will be very excited to hear where his card from. Thank you to the whole Z93 crew for always being awesome!

UW-L senior Andrew Londre is a co-founder of MOST (Move Out Sustainability Team), which UW-L students formed in 2011 to facilitate a responsible and sustainable student move out process in La Crosse. Andrew says, for decades, La Crosse curbsides have been littered with trash during move out time as students leave behind items that someone else could potentially use such as clothes, furniture, dishes or recyclable electronics.
To combat the problem MOST organizes an annual “Dumpster Diversion,” where collection sites are set up for students to drop off items to go to Goodwill and other non-profits.
Collection is Saturday, May 18th from 11am-5pm, and collection sites will be located on-campus in the Mitchell Hall Parking lot off of Campbell Road, and off-campus in the parking lot of Jade Café and Toppers Pizza on West Avenue.
Blood donations often decline during the summer, when schools are out and vacations ar in . The Red Cross encourages donors to make an appointment to give now to help ensure a stable supply in the weeks and months ahead, giving patients a chance to create a summer of stories. Donors who present to give blood between May 23rd and May 31st, in honor of Memorial Day, could win one of five $1,000 American Express gift cards to create their own summer stories. In addition, their donations will honor those who gave their life for our country and support those in need of care. The Red Cross serves about 3,000 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country, including many Veterans Affairs medical centers.

Dalton was a healthy 19 year old, full time student who, upon returning home from traveling out of the country, became immediately ill. After 24 days in the hospital, 11 blood transfusions, a bone marrow biopsy, and hundreds of tests, the doctors could not find what was making him deathly ill. Mayo Hospital in Rochester opened his case nationwide to see if other hospitals could help find an answer. Since they could not find answers, they continued to treat his symptoms to keep him comfortable. As a result of Dalton’s illness, his body was not releasing red blood cells. He was suffering from Acute Microcytic Anemia. He was treated with IVIG. Currently his red blood cell count is less than half of what it needs to be. Dalton has a long road in front of him! Help us support Dalton and his family during this difficult time with medical bills and expenses!
