Community Involvement is Close to Our Hearts

TRICare is TRICOM’s corporate social responsibility program. The goal of TRICare is to accomplish more as a group than we can individually, with our community at the heart of all our efforts.

At TRICOM, we are an active member of the community and believe strongly in the power of giving. In recognition for this commitment, TRICOM was awarded the American Staffing Association national Care Award in 2016 for TRICOM’s work with Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

By hosting events including clothing and food drives, auctions, bowling, and breakfasts and lunches, TRICOM's employees have raised money to support local organizations such as Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Hadley Terrace, New Beginnings are Possible, Community Advocates, Project Concern, TLS Behavioral, Habitat For Humanity, Life of Hope, and many others.

At the center of this spirit of service are our employees. In addition to the organizations above, they go above and beyond to support the following causes:

 

Briggs & Al's Run & Walk for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin

TRICOM has been an active supporter of Briggs & Al's Run & Walk for Children's Hospital since our first company team participated in 1996. Since then, we've continued to increase our support and participation in the event, and for the last several years have been one of the top corporate sponsors.

Over the years, TRICOM has raised over $700,000 for Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, not just through their annual walk / run, but also through other fundraising events we've hosted throughout the year.

In 2014, TRICOM began Cheers For Children's, a fun-filled, family day that includes softball and volleyball tournaments, silent auction, live music, refreshments and more. In the last three years of the event, we've raised over $20,000 for Children's Hospital.

Go Red For Women
TRICOM is also passionate about health, which is why we have actively participated in the Go Red for Women day for the last several years. Employees show their support by wearing red on this day. In honor of the event, TRICOM has raised over $750.00 for the American Heart Association through various lunches and raffles. We've also hosted healthy breakfasts and provided staff with healthy snacks and desserts. As another sign of commitment to a healthy lifestyle, TRICOM provided staff with heart healthy recipes.

 
Peanut Butter Challenge
TRICOM has also partnered with the Hunger Task Force for our Peanut Butter Challenge. Peanut Butter is highly sought-after at food pantries, and this year TRICOM staff BLEW past our goal of 500 jars. We collected 843 jars of peanut butter – all in support of a great cause! 
 
WheelCharity
In conjunction with TRICOM’s 2016 Client Conference, TRICOM raised over $7,000 000 and donated additional funds to build 13 wheelchairs. During the Client Conference, teams built the 13 wheelchairs and decorated them to honor their future owners. The funds and wheelchair donations were then divided between three local veteran charities, one of which was. The American Legion Post 416 in Greendale, WI, who bestowed upon TRICOM a certificate and Eagle Award for their gift. TRICOM was privileged to be able to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for our country.
 
Season Of Giving
TRICOM's Season of Giving Team also focuses on the community through our employee's efforts to raise money for a wide variety of charities. The team works with the Volunteer Center of Greater Milwaukee to receive holiday gift tags for children and seniors that employees then raise money to fulfill. Employees have even had the privilege to drop gifts off and participate in their holiday party. TRICOM’s Season of Giving Team has also supported Penfield Children’s Center, Bay View community Center, Bethesda Senior Center, St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care, Guadalupe Murguia Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters – Bowl for Kids’ Sake, Menomonee Falls Food Pantry, Hunger Task Force, and others.
