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.
Sharing your holidays can be one of the most meaningful things you do this season. Every year, donors tell us that giving back to their community over the holidays is their favorite tradition.
Other ways to share your holidays
