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.

This month, Atlas is making a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project. This charity was identified as important to both our company and our customers.
Wounded Warrior Project has recognized that more than 52,000 servicemen and women are physically injured in recent military conflicts, 500,000 are living with invisible wounds, from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder and that 320,000 are experiencing debilitating brain trauma. Every warrior has a next mission and the Wounded Warrior Project knows that the transition to civilian life is a journey, and for every warrior, family member, and caregiver, that journey looks different. They provide support for their first step, and each step that follows.
At Atlas, we are proudly making a donation to this organization to help make a difference in our community and for our veterans.

This month we have a special donation being made to a charity that is important to our company and our customers. Our chosen charity for April is the Virginia Piper Institute.
Founded at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in 1990, the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute now includes services at many other hospitals in Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Their approach emphasizes compassionate and effective care, offering access to the most advanced treatment and research options for cancer patients.
At Atlas, we are fortunate to be able to make a donation to this wonderful organization and continue to make a difference in our community.

Atlas has recently made a multiple furniture donation to the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Items sold at the ReStore allow more families to open the door on a safe, affordable home. A home means kids can sleep and study in safety, parents can start saving for kids’ futures, and families can build lasting connections in their communities.
At Atlas, we are continuously looking for opportunities to give back to our community. Being able to donate to this honorable cause allows us to continue our goal of being a business with a strong sense of social responsibility.
