From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to everyone at State Collection Service – you are making a difference in the lives of these students.

Employees of State Collection Service, Inc., winner of the 2014 Wisconsin Family Business of the Year Award, recently helped raise over $3,000 to purchase backpacks and supplies for area children as a new school year begins. Staff in the company’s Madison and Beloit offices recently dropped off their donations to the Madison Metropolitan School District’s (MMSD) Transition Education Program (TEP) and the School District of Beloit for distribution.

The MMSD’s TEP initiative has been in place since 1989. The mission of TEP is to provide homeless children and youth equitable access to the same educational opportunities afforded “housed” children. In addition to ensuring homeless children and youth have transportation to and from school as well as regular classroom placement, TEP collects donations of school supplies for these kids and, often, relies on the local community for assistance.

“As the number of students experiencing homelessness rises each year, we find ourselves grateful for the generosity of organizations like State Collection Service,” said Transition Education Program Resource Teacher, Jani Koester. “All of the donated backpacks have been handed out; a gift like this helps us give our students the tools they need to be able to learn,” she continued. “From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to everyone at State Collection Service – you are making a difference in the lives of these students.”

Continuing its longstanding tradition of contributing to the local community, employees of State Collection Service’s Beloit call center helped the School District of Beloit by donating various school supplies for families in need. The group delivered over $500 worth of supplies to the District in late August.

“We all know how exciting starting a new school year can be,” said Tim Haag, Client Services Manager and son of State Collection Service owner, Tom Haag. “But when you don’t have the right supplies, that excitement can turn into anxiety. Our employees continually amaze me with the generosity they show within their communities. Fundraising and volunteer activities are a bedrock of the commitment we have to our communities. Activities such as this back-to-school fundraiser also honor our legacy as a Wisconsin Family Business of the Year.”
