Join TeamSoft for a FREE wellness event where we will learn stretches and breathing exercises you can easily incorporate into your day, even when sitting at your desk! There is no need to change out of your work clothes or bring a different pair of shoes; simply come as you are!
Prolonged sitting (and let's be honest, we aren't always sitting in a way that would make us the poster child for ergonomics) can wreak havoc on our bodies. Issues ranging from poor circulation in legs, strained neck, sore shoulders, diminished spine flexibility, carpal tunnel, tight hips, and other concerns have been attributed to sitting for long periods of time. One of the best benefits of daily stretching is that it stimulates the formation of synovial fluid in the joints, which acts to make the joints easier to move, thus reducing pain and stiffness. Research indicates that periodic stretching may reduce pain by up to 72 percent. Increased flexibility and an increased sense of self-worth also comes with the territory. Over time, daily stretching can significantly reduce the risk of developing osteoarthritis, a debilitating condition which affects every aging adult and is the number one cause of disability worldwide. Taking a moment to remember to breathe offers many benefits as well. On top of providing relaxation and stress-relief benefits, deep breathing provides extra oxygen to the blood, which makes you feel more alert.

To coincide with our Sharing Wishes Spring Cleaning initiative, we are rolling out the option to donate to Sharing Wishes through payroll deduction! This will not replace the Wish Lists that we send out, but payroll deduction is just another, possibly easier, way for you to donate.
Many of you have requested a payroll deduction option to make monetary Sharing Wishes donations, which would then be tax deductible. After doing some research, we decided to partner up with the Madison Community Foundation (MCF) to make payroll deductions a possibility. The MCF is a local, non-profit organization with a mission to encourage, facilitate and manage long-term philanthropy.
Through payroll deductions, you can make ongoing donations to the Sharing Wishes fund, managed by MCF. TeamSoft will send your donations to MCF and then the TCGC will access these funds to purchase Sharing Wishes items. Again, MCF is a nonprofit organization making your donations to Sharing Wishes tax deductible. At the end of each calendar year, you will receive a letter from the MCF verifying your taxable donation.
You will still receive a quarterly Wish List from the Family Stabilization Program families at Salvation Army, but the tax deductible payroll deductions will allow the TCGC to purchase any remaining items on the Wish List to assist families with urgent needs. The donations will go into effect on your March 15th, 2014 payroll.
Documentation on how much each dollar of your donation will affect the FSP families will be mailed to your home along with a form to sign up for payroll deductions to the Sharing Wishes fund through the MCF.
