FCI started this event as a means to support both the arts and civic awareness of families in need through the efforts of Middleton Outreach Ministry.
For more than 30 years, MOM has led a community-wide effort to prevent homelessness & end hunger in West Madison, Middleton and Cross Plains, a service area that totals more than 60,000 people. With the help of business partners, area schools, affiliated churches, service clubs and hundreds of volunteers, MOM helps those who need them most by providing basic needs: Food, Clothing, Housing & Emergency Funds, Help for Seniors and Seasonal Programs.

Canstruction®Madison is a competition where teams build incredible, highly imaginative structures out of canned goods and packaged food they have purchased or collected. After the competition, all the food is donated to MOM's Food Pantry. Canstruction®Madison invites the public to view the structures and contribute their own donation of canned food to help end hunger.
Join MOM and sleep under the stars on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at KEVA Sports Center Outdoor Field for our first MOM's Sleep-Out. An incredible evening of fun, sports, games, a picnic style dinner, a drive in style movie theatre complete with popcorn, and s'mores at the beach on the campfire. This fun, family friendly evening is dedicated to preventing homelessness. All ages welcome.
Grab your friends, family and sports teams and spend an entire evening socializing and having fun all while raising money to prevent homelessness in our community. Create a Team with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, sports groups, music groups or any combination thereof. Raise money. Decorate a box. Meet new friends. Dunk the local principal or CEO and share an experience you'll never forget. Help us make MOM's Inaugural Sleep-Out a huge success.
In her own words, Gwen talks about how MOM was able to help her and her family when times were tough. Now graduated, nationally certified as a Surgical Technologist and working for two Madison area hospitals, she is grateful to be able to give back to the community. Read her thank you note.
