Holiday gift boxes!

Here’s a GREAT IDEA for holiday gifts for your customers, staff or2014 Holiday gift box 1 stakeholders this year – Consider giving food items made and packaged by people with disabilities in Wisconsin!

Every delicious item in each box is home-made, right here in Wisconsin by people with disabilities, and each box is packaged by people with disabilities. Not only are you showing your appreciation to someone special during the holidays, you are supporting people with disabilities wishing to earn a paycheck!

You may select items from the price list, and have a choice of two sizes of gift boxes – Holiday Tree – 12″x 12″x 3-1/2″, or Red – 11″ x 8-3/4″x 4.” There is also an option of a 6″ x 10″ beautiful gift bag for 1 jar of jam and one to two dip mixes. We will work with you on your item choices to assure they fit our boxes. Orders need to have the same items in each box. Your final price will be determined when products are selected, and labor, handling and freight charges (if shipped) are calculated. You may also choose to pick up your order.

We hope you consider our gift boxes for all of your Holiday gift giving!

Thank you for helping us in our mission of creating opportunities for individuals with disabilities to live fulfilling lives!

 Check presentation! Blaine Bergmann and Mel Stanton 2014

Last evening we were blessed with a visit from Blaine and Kathy Bergmann and Tom (Mel) Stanton, who started “Mel’s Pig Roast,” a small fundraiser, in 1999.

It began when a good friend amongst a group of friends lost his sister to cancer. She was a single mother with a special needs daughter who participated in Special Olympics. The decision was made to hold a raffle in her memory. $350 was donated to Special Olympics in 1999. 

Since then, Mel’s has blossomed into a very successful fund raising entity, donating more than $83,700 in 2014 alone, to several local charities focused in Special Needs, Human Services and Scholarship Opportunities!

We are so grateful to be one of those fortunate organizations supported by Mel’s Pig Roast!  We were presented a check for $5,000 which will go to support our Recreation Program here at the Threshold!

To Tom (Mel) Stanton and the Bergmann family, we are thankful for your wonderful support over these many years.  Your generosity goes a long way in keeping clients of the Threshold active in sports, through our Recreation Program.  Bless you all for your hard work, and for helping not only the Threshold, but so many deserving organizations in Wisconsin! 

To all of our friends, please support this great organization! Visit their website and see all the good they are doing!
