September 30, 2015 – BILTRITE Team Member Jerry H. accepted an award from Mayor Tom Barrett for BILTRITE’S continued support of the Grand Avenue Club Employment Program. The Grand Avenue Club is a non profit organization whose mission is to help people experiencing mental illness achieve recovery through work, education, and community life. Currently, BILTRITE is part of the GAC’s transitional employment program which means a GAC member is employed by a partner employer of the GAC like BILTRITE for 6 months. BILTRITE has been a partner since 2006! Jerry was a member of GAC and was our head custodian from 2009 to 2020!
February 2022 – BILTRITE donated an Elran Furniture recliner to Detective Andy W. of the Milwaukee Police Department who was shot during an attempted robbery in the Third Ward on January 18, 2022. Thank you to the Historic Third Ward Association for connecting us with Detective Andy W.
