In its fifth year, Dairy Cares rallied for its largest gift yet, bringing their total contribution to more than $450,000 for the state-of-the-art medical center that is centered in Milwaukee and serves 40 locations throughout Wisconsin.

“Dairy Cares is the type of organization and partnership that is an absolute pleasure to build,” says Dr. Michael Meyer, who received the check on behalf of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

Meyer is the medical director of the hospital’s transport team, which provides ICU-level and neonatal care for critically ill children as they are moved to the main hospital location. He adds, “As I go through and meet people here, each and every person has a story about a child they know that was touched by Children’s.”

“At the core of Dairy Cares are Wisconsin dairy farm families and the businesses that support our way of life,” explains Jim Ostrom, dairyman and co-founder of the non-profit organization. “We could not be more proud to give back on behalf of the dairy community in such a generous way to the Children’s Hospital.”

The donation was presented on Aug. 1, during the Dairy Cares annual garden party, which was hosted at the Ostrom home near De Pere, Wis.
