Giving, Not Taking, One for the TEAM

October 2017

Facility Services’ social and charitable arm pulls together for the benefit of others

It started as some of the very best ideas do--with cookies, brownies and other assorted goodies. In 2012, Facility Services at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point held a bake sale in support of the university’s student food pantry, The Cupboard. The fundraiser was the brainchild of the newly formed group known as TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More). TEAM members concurrently held a food drive, collecting some 58 pounds of canned goods and nonperishable items to go with the $37 in cash raised during the sale. Thus began a tradition linking good times with good works.
