MARSHFIELD — Security Health Plan of Wisconsin Inc. helped the Marshfield Police Department with a donation of office furniture on June 19. Marshfield Police Chief Rick Gramza estimated the donation of 11 office cubicles and a conference table saved the department more than $23,000.
Security Health Plan is in the midst of a remodeling project and is replacing cubicles to maximize the use of space at its office building in Marshfield. Security Health Plan’s Director of Operations Sara Foemmel said the Marshfield Police Department had a need for the office furniture, and Security Health Plan was eager to assist.
“The benefits are two-fold,” Foemmel said. “We can help the police department save money and reduce the amount of waste going to a landfill. The cubicles would have likely been destroyed otherwise.”
Gramza said the Marshfield Police Department is in the process of reorganizing its work spaces, so the donation was welcome.
“When this opportunity came up, it seemed like a good fit and provided a huge cost savings for us,” he said. “This type of donation is great for the city as a whole. It saves the taxpayers money, repurposes equipment from Security Health Plan, and will make for more efficient use of space within the police department.”
Gramza added, “We strive to be fiscally responsible with taxpayer money, to create efficient and practical workspaces for our employees, and to collaborate with the community in any way possible. Our core values include efficiency, teamwork, progressiveness, and accountability. Our partnership with Security Health Plan assists us in bringing these core values to life.”
