The Clothing Center is an integral part of our MOM mission and is open the same hours as the Food Pantry.
Here, clients will be greeted by friendly volunteers guiding them to find clothes that may help them dress for success at a job interview, provide clothing for growing children, or otherwise assist with bedding.
Dishware is provided to support those moving from homelessness to an apartment, relieving them of this financial burden.
In operation for over 15 years, the program saves customers over a half million dollars at thrift store prices every year.
Hunger and the threat of homelessness affect all aspects of a child's life. Your financial gift is about so much more than meeting day-to-day needs. It's about giving families - individuals, parents, and kids - the support they need to make it through today and live with hope for the future. Financial gifts of money help support MOM's programs, such as the Food Pantry, Clothing Center, Homelessness Prevention (Housing) programs, Family Stabilization and seasonal programs in the Middleton, West Madison and Cross Plains areas of Wisconsin.
Curve Shop, a local plus-size pop-up consignment sale, recently made a donation of over 800 pounds of wonderful, high-quality plus-sized clothing to the Clothing Center. After the Curve Shop sale, consignors had the ability to donate their unsold items directly to MOM.
When most people think of organizing a drive for a food pantry, boxes of cereal or stacks of canned goods come to mind. And indeed, most food banks are need of these items. But they’re often also in need of something else: menstrual products. That’s why some high school seniors at Middleton High School decided to do hold a drive focused exclusively on menstrual products. They called it the Period Drive.
Three years ago, when Hannah arrived at MOM for her first appointment with a case manager, things weren’t going well. If she didn’t make a payment soon, her utilities would be shut off. Hannah knew MOM had a food pantry and clothing center. She hoped she could leave with some bread, milk and maybe warm socks for the winter so she could use her limited resources to make a payment on her utility bill. MOM helped her with those things--and provided her the turning point she needed to be successful.
Youth from the 4-H Cross Plains Wondermakers decided to go the extra mile this year. Instead of choosing one project to support MOM, the youth spent the entire year doing a variety of projects with the goal of making a difference for families in our community.
Community means an eclectic group of individuals sharing common interests and attitudes. MOM is filled with a wonderfully broad spectrum of volunteers, giving us both balance and diversity. The many uses we've gotten out of some unique donated material demonstrates this. Ideas are typically born with one question, "What might I do," and this project started the same way.
