Cordeck for a Cause reviews all donation requests and approves donations made to charitable organizations to benefit causes within the surrounding communities of each Cordeck location.
Our committee attempts to financially support as many local organizations as possible and, in some cases, these organizations need physical participation or tangible items to reach their goals. In these cases, we call upon our employees to assist in these community activities; such as assist in building the Kenosha Dream Playground or participating in local walks/runs and golf outings.
We also help to meet the needs of our community by organizing various drives such as: blood, food, school supply, blessing bags, etc. During the holiday season, we provide dinners and Christmas gifts to local families in need.
At the HEART of Cordeck for A Cause, we are especially vigilant in the fight to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. In this effort, we have partnered with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) as our flagship charity. We hold an annual Double Down for Diabetes Texas Hold’em Tournament and Casino Night event – with 100% of all proceeds being donated to JDRF – and also participate in the JDRF One Walk as well as bike ride events each year.
Additionally, Cordeck for a Cause provides charitable contributions to Youth for Christ (YFC) of Southeastern Wisconsin a non-denominational Christian group supporting young individuals in building a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ, and Royal Family Kids – Kenosha, WI a program that provides safe support and trauma recovery though camps and mentoring clubs.
We continually looks for ways to support the communities we serve and, as we value what is important to our employees, we welcome suggestions of charities that are meaningful to them.
In the Fall of 2018, Cordeck for a Cause finished another project – improving the recreational area of the Bridges Community Center in Kenosha, WI. All of their hard work and dedication makes our community a better place to live, and truly makes a difference in someone’s life.
