Masters Gallery honored

In recognition for its community efforts and focus on giving back to the community, Masters Gallery Foods, Inc. received the 2014 Wisconsin 75 Distinguished Performer Community Award.

“To be singled out from so many deserving Wisconsin companies is a great honor for our entire Masters Gallery team. Giving back to the community is embedded in our corporate culture, a philosophy that began with my father, and we’re proud to carry on today,” said Jeff Gentine, executive vice president and company co-owner. “Doing the right thing for our customers, our employees and our community is the only way we know how to do business, and we’re thrilled to be recognized for those efforts.”

The Wisconsin 75 is an annual listing of the largest privately-held companies in the state of Wisconsin. Distinguished Performer awards are a separate, distinct award category of the Wisconsin 75, which are awarded to organizations for accomplishments in specific areas.

The five categories are community, entrepreneurship, environment, generations and people.

Salvation Army to start kettle drive

The Salvation Army in Sheboygan announces the launch of its annual Christmas Campaign to raise funds to help people who continue to struggle across Sheboygan.

This year’s campaign, “Give Shelter. Give Warmth. Give Hope.” is a reminder of the joy that comes from helping those in need. Particularly in difficult times like these, when our neighbors still face unemployment, rising costs, and other effects of an uncertain economy, helping means both sharing blessings — and being blessed by doing good.

The Salvation Army’s time-honored Christmas Campaign will include traditional fundraising methods, such as direct mail and the highly visible Red Kettles — a holiday tradition that has served as a symbol of goodwill for more than 100 years.

Locally, The Salvation Army in Sheboygan hopes to raise $540,000 to help sustain the vital programs and services that help needy people in their daily struggle for survival.

Jeanne M. Jentsch, development director, said in a press release announcing the campaign, “It’s especially hard during the holiday season, when so many of our neighbors wonder how they will provide for their families. The Salvation Army looks to our community for their generosity: so we can help our neighbors in experiencing difficult times.”

Salvation Army officials emphasize any contribution will help . and donations of time are accepted as gratefully as donations of money.

“Volunteering to ring bells or serve warm meals is a wonderful way to connect with the community, to Give Shelter. Give Warmth. Give Hope.” said Jentsch. To volunteer this Christmas season, contact Carrye Jo Cony at (920) 694-1271.

From its humble beginnings as a fundraiser started by a Salvation Army Captain in San Francisco in 1891, the Red Kettle Campaign has grown into one of the most recognizable and important charitable campaigns in the United States. Thousands of Salvation Army bell-ringers fan out across the country to ring bells and solicit donations to the iconic Red Kettles from holiday shoppers.
