Being a member of the Care-a-lotta board provides me not only a better understanding of how our nonprofit customers operate but also gives me the opportunity to have a voice regarding causes that I support.
I support the Alzheimer’s Association. My grandmother's diagnosis and battle with Alzheimer's deeply affected my family. It is such a horrible disease to watch and experience. I also love organizations that work with, and for people with special needs and disabilities. My passion will always be with children, and organizations that educate and protect them.
Care-a-lotta inspires me with the opportunity to help lesser-known charities and support our communities. I am passionate about anything related to veteran affairs, and animal rescue. My father served in the Vietnam War and owes a lot to several veteran groups. As far as animals are concerned I love them all. They need a voice too.
I feel lucky to be a part of the Care-a-lotta board. Since I joined the board, I have appreciated The Bartolotta Restaurant group even more. I am blessed to be a part of this amazing family company that gives back our non-profit community immensely.
I feel that since I have been a part of Care-a-lotta, I have been able to be an advocate to the non-profit community and the more passionate I become. It’s a great feeling! I love helping children and youth organizations, as I feel that if we can make an impact on future generations, it’s through our youth.
Joining the Care-a-lotta board was a fantastic opportunity to connect with other like-minded colleagues while being able to have a chance to use the corporation’s assets to make a difference in the Milwaukee community.
I support local causes that directly impact people’s physical and mental well-being – from Hunger Task Force to Urban Ecology Center and others. To me, making the world a better place through action is important.
I grew up in Milwaukee and since moving back have been looking for organizations that are interested in helping our community. Milwaukee is an amazing city but we still have so much to do to in terms of bridging the gaps between the rich and the poor, highlighting our city on a national scale, among other things. Because I work for Bartolotta, Care-a-lotta was a no-brainer as I was exploring charitable organizations.
I have an affinity for poverty alleviation, education, fair housing, non-violence, integration and community in our city. As someone who grew up in the city of Milwaukee (53208 zip code), I have seen a lot of these issues firsthand and I hope I can help even in my own small way.
Being part of the Care-a-lotta board gives me the chance to do something I’m passionate about - becoming a bigger part of the community. Since I moved to Wisconsin, I’ve fallen in love with the state, its culture, and its people, and I want a more hands-on approach with the various community organizations that make Wisconsin such a great place to live.
Growing up, my family was very involved with organizations that provided food to the hungry. My mom and dad cared deeply for this cause and instilled in my brother and me that feeding the hungry was a difference you could make in people’s lives, regardless of how much time or money you had.

I was inspired to join the Care-a-lotta board because it provided me with the opportunity to give back to the community through organizations making a big difference in the lives of those who need it most. I have an affinity for children’s education - they are our future and can become an asset to our community.
I was raised to always give back but have often fallen on the crutch of ”I am too busy to participate.” Being part of the Care-a-lotta board – no more excuses, I am at work, I have committed to this board, I get to be an integral part of the positive change we are affecting.
I support causes dedicated to the welfare of children, education (and everyone’s access to it), and the rights and dignity of members of the LGBT community. We have a responsibility to help those with the least.
