Xavier Launches Business Directory
June 1, 2020
In an effort to support local and family businesses, St. Francis Xavier Catholic School System has launched the Xavier Business Directory and the response has been tremendous. Thus far, over 100 businesses are listed in the directory and many supporters said they are working their way through various categories in an effort to support each business during this extraordinary time.
Xavier’s Advancement and Alumni Department drove the effort. Lisa Pfaff, Director of Alumni Relations said, “The Xavier Business Directory had been on our wish list to accomplish for some time, but these unprecedented times and the desire to support local businesses and our Xavier families motivated us to fast-track this initiative. Through an extremely collaborative effort, we began accepting directory submissions on March 26, one day after Wisconsin’s Safer at Home Order went into effect.” The response has been overwhelmingly positive.
The Business Directory currently has twenty-three categories and supporters are encouraged to check the directory first when a good or service is needed. The Directory is open to any Xavier-affiliated alumni, current parents, parents of alumni, and employees. Anyone may view the directory by visiting the Xavier Business Directory.
