ERMANTOWN, WI – April 10th, 2020 – Discount Ramps®, a local-based online retailer of products and valued niche brands, announces their efforts to support the surrounding community of Washington County and the Greater Milwaukee area by “paying it forward” with distribution of over 2,000 masks that were donated by key suppliers.
“It’s very uplifting to work with people who care,” said Director of Global Sourcing Desiree Pasbrig. “Due to the number of suppliers who reached out to us, we received many more masks than our own staff needed. Our Global Sourcing Coordinator Michelle Uniewski really took the cause to heart and immediately volunteered to donate these to local places of need, contacting people and making all the deliveries.”
Focusing on organizations with front line workers, Uniewski delivered 900 masks to Froedtert Menomonee Falls Hospital, as well as another 400 masks to Children’s Hospital. The Fire Departments of Menomonee Falls and West Bend also received 200 masks each. In Kewaskum, 100 masks were donated to the Police/Fire Department and 200 more to the Kettle Moraine Gardens Nursing Home where they will be distributed amongst staff and residents.
“The Greater Milwaukee area is where we call home. It’s where we live, play, eat, and attend school,” said Vice President and CMO Eric Grunewald. “Whether it’s supporting healthcare workers in time of crisis or helping nonprofit organizations raise funding for their mission, we believe it is part of our responsibility as a company to give back to the people that provide support to us and our community every single day.”
Discount Ramps has received a heartwarming response from the community. “Your donation will provide protection for our members on many calls,” said Battalion Chief Kevin Rokenbrokt of the Menomonee Falls Fire Department. “It is great to see the community come together to help each other out.” From Kewaskum Chief of Police Thomas Bishop, “On behalf of all our officers, thank you!”
Discount Ramps looks forward to continuing its support during the COVID-19 pandemic through expanded community outreach. “We are constantly looking for ways to give back both locally and nationally to the people and organizations that provide services to those in need,” said Grunewald. “Giving back to the community is an important cornerstone of our mission at Discount Ramps.”
