Earlier this month, Dental Associates, Wisconsin’s largest family-owned dental group practice, sent 780 “Cups of Joe” to United States military personnel who are stationed overseas. The international coffee delivery is part of an ongoing initiative at the company to recognize and thank those who serve.
“The 780 cups represent the number of employees we have and it’s just one small way we can show our appreciation and respect for the work those in the military do every single day,” says Alexa Manos, director of strategic planning for Dental Associates.
To accompany the coffee, Dental Associates employees sent nearly 150 personal notes and, in return, received responses from the troops.
Thank you so much for the cup of coffee and the kind message. Gestures like this make what we do worthwhile. Knowing we have the support from the American people back home gives us the strength to carry on and endure these hardships.
