On Monday October 7th, we participated in the 2019 Sports for Special Kids Golf Tournament in Raleigh, NC. This was the 15th annual event that benefits Sports for Special Kids, a charity that helps special needs children experience sports with the eventual goal of creating a facility designed just for them. In addition to a great time golfing, guests enjoyed breakfast and lunch, drinks, and other festivities all for a great cause! We are happy to support charities that benefit those in our community.
On Thursday October 3rd, we participated in the 2019 Border Battle Golf Scramble. While this event provided a fun activity for us, it also helped to benefit our community. All proceeds from the scramble went towards benefiting ECASD (Eau Claire Area School District) homeless students. During the past school year, 311 students found themselves in a homeless situation. This program provides support for uninterrupted education while students are experiencing homelessness. Thank you to all who helped put on this fantastic event!

We love to use this event as an opportunity to get to know our customers better with some friendly competition. The day featured a 4 person scramble, with first place trophies handed out to the team with the lowest score. Thank you to all who attended this fun event!

This month we are making a donation to Sharing and Caring Hands. This was chosen by our customer of the month from a list of charitable organizations that was selected by our employees.
Sharing and Caring Hands was founded in 1985 by Mary Jo Copeland as a safety-net organization to help those who could not obtain help from the welfare system. They exist as a vehicle for volunteers to commit their time and resources to make a difference in the lives of the people of the community. Sharing and Caring Hands provides a host of services that include food, clothing, shelter, transportation assistance, medical and dental help and much more to the over 20,000 people who come through their facility each month. Over $400,000 is spent each month on the needs of the poor.
Atlas is thankful to be able to contribute to a cause that benefits our community. To learn more about Sharing and Caring Hands’ mission or how you can make a difference, visit their website.

For the month of August, Atlas is making a donation to the National MS-Society. We believe in helping our community and giving what we can to help others out. Our employees and customers have highlighted this organization as important to them.
The National MS-Society is an organization built to find a medical solution to Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that attacks the central nervous system. They have the ultimate goal of finding a way to stop this disease in its tracks, help those who are fighting it, and restore what has been lost. We believe this organization is working towards amazing things and doing what they can to make a difference.
Due to all the generous donations the National MS-Society has been able to make tremendous progress. They host multiple events throughout the year that you can participate in to help raise awareness. Also, they always need volunteers. Check out their website for more details. Atlas is proud to make another contribution to the National MS-Society.

Here at Atlas, we know the importance of recognizing our employees and thanking them for all that they do for this company. Thus, we hosted the 1st Annual Summer Fest celebration this past week. We had one goal for this event, and that was to show our appreciation for the Atlas employees. We truly understand that there would be no Atlas without our hardworking staff. We wanted this celebration to encompass, in two words, all things “Summer Fun”.
The Human Resources summer intern was given free reign for this summer fest- and she went in the direction of a Summertime Mexican Fiesta theme. It was equipped with Mexican classics like street tacos with a Guadalajaran flare and a mariachi band, fused with summer favorites like a dunk tank and a water balloon toss. The party was knitted together with brightly colored tables and decorations, a frozen drink machine, and outdoor games. For the kiddos, a taco piñata and face painting were the biggest hits of the day! Guests also enjoyed raffles with the chance to win baseball tickets, electronics, coolers, and more.
It was a fun day filled with perfect weather, lots of laughter, and a whole bunch of fun! We were ecstatic to see that even some of our Chippewa Falls folks made the trek to celebrate. Katelyn had such a blast planning this special day and was proud to put on an event that people had FUN at! We cannot thank our Atlas employees enough for everything they do – but we hope this party just scratched the surface of our appreciation.

We recently were a proud sponsor of the “Just Us For Justice” run/walk in Eau Claire, WI. This event promotes Fierce Freedom who is a non-profit focused on the fight against human trafficking and exploitation. At Atlas, we felt that this organization does many great things in this ongoing fight, and we wanted to help make a difference. Over 600 people participated in the run/walk and Fierce Freedom was able to raise over $30,000. With that money they will be able to impact many lives. We want to thank everyone who participated and encourage others to make it out to our next sponsored event!Read More

At Atlas, we want to make a difference in our community. This is a priority for us, and we enjoy making donations to charities that are important to our employees and customers. For the month of July, we will be donating to the National MS-Society to help fight Multiple Sclerosis.
The National MS-Society is a charity that puts all its efforts towards research to find ways to fight MS. This is a disease that attacks the central nervous system and interferes with the flow of messages to the brain and body. MS affects hundreds of thousands of people in the United States and millions worldwide. At the National MS-Society their goal is to stop MS in its tracks, restore what someone has lost from fighting MS, and end the disease forever. They are making tremendous progress due to the many generous donations and we are glad to help contribute.
The National MS-Society also hosts multiple events throughout the year where you can participate in and help fight! Also remember, raising awareness and volunteering is just as valuable as donating. Make a difference today!

One of our strategic initiatives at Atlas is to enhance our work environment. Demolition of our East Offices and bathrooms began in January 2019.
Wall paper and old flooring were stripped. New epoxy flooring installed in high traffic areas, new carpet in office areas and fresh paint throughout.
New open format offices installed with break areas to improve our working environment and promote collaboration. Remodel finished in April 2019.
In 2018 our lunchroom and west offices were remodeled. New flooring and fresh paint followed by new furniture, tables, cabinets and fixtures and a new micro market to replace the old vending machines.
