MOM depends on the support of its neighbors to provide much needed services to area people in need.
“It’s businesses like WTS Paradigm that provide a great example to other leaders in the community as to how they can make a difference and address critical needs. We are thankful to have their ongoing support!” says Kathy Hansen, Executive Director of MOM.
Over the past years, WTS Paradigm has been involved with MOM in many ways. They provided volunteers for and sponsored the 2011 MOM fundraising event Home for the Holidays, as well as participated in Canstruction Madison 2012, a community competition to end Hunger. Volunteers from WTS Paradigm worked all morning at the KEVA Sports Center building an Easter Island Moai Head sculpture out of cans and Ramen Noodles.
In total WTS Paradigm’s structure used 400 cans of peaches, 300 cans of tomatoes, 400 cans of pinto beans, and 1440 individual Ramen Noodles packages. Their sculpture provided over 1,200 pounds of food to the Food Pantry during a time when it was much needed. The business also participated in the inaugural Canstruction Madison in 2011, building a crab out of mostly cans of tomato sauce.
Just recently, this area business held a charity fundraiser cookout, with WTS Paradigm matching all donations from the event and splitting it amongst three area organizations. “The event has been a success the last two years so we decided to do it again this year and had a great turnout,” stated Nathan Herbst, CEO of WTS Paradigm. “It is great to see our staff have a great time all while supporting three deserving charities. ”
Based in the Middleton, WTS Paradigm is the established leader in configuration technology for the building products industry. Nathan Herbst, WTS Paradigm CEO, lives in Middleton with his wife Sarah and his three young boys. The Herbst family has devoted time nearly every week for seven years to MOM food pantry.
