Your Red Kettle donations of $16,092 added to the $11,000 match equaled $27,092

"For familes by familes"



The numbers are in.  The $16,092 in gifts donated by a generous public during the 2nd Annual AZCO Inc. "For Families, by Families" red kettle match day when combined with the $11,000  of matching funds provided by area families along with AZCO Inc made for a total net of $27,092 at the kettles in the Fox Cities last December 18.

"AZCO continues to be humbled by the generosity of the residents of the Fox Cities, said Mark Loper, President / CEO, AZCO Inc.  "With this wonderful response to the AZCO match day, we know our community's heart is in the place of helping those in need. We are pleased to continue our support of the Army and its programs."

This special day at the kettles had a twofold purpose; to encourage families to volunteer to ring (Dec. 18 ); and to join forces with other local families to help offer their collective match monies to inspire donors. A long-time tradition for families to participate in has been bell-ringing for the Salvation Army and in turn to help out other families who are in need.

Inspired by match days like Thrivent and WE Energies, the Jeff and Diane Walters’s family of Appleton helped to start the "Family Match Day" in 2011 with a donation that was used as an incentive for other donors to participate.   Along with a grant from AZCO Inc other area families also participate in the match day again this year.

Thanks to AZCO and the Jeff & Diane Walters Family and others.
