Donate Clothing & Other Goods
MOM's Clothing Center provides clothing to clients at no-cost to help people extend their budgets. In order to provide the highest quality shopping experience and due to space constraints, MOM gratefully accepts good-quality in-season clothing.
Items such as winter coats and swim suits are accepted year round.
Other Items and Ways to Donate
Other donated items we appreciate include: dishes and glasses in sets; pots, pans and baking equipment; all items that help serve and prepare food (non-electrical, please).
Back to School Items
School supplies are collected during the summer months to help prepare kids for school through our Back to School Program.
We are in great need of linens, such as bath and hand towels; wash rags; twin, double and queen size sheets, cases, blankets, quilts and mattress pads; shower curtains and liners; bath mats and rugs; and baby linens and blankets.
We love to offer children's books in good condition to families who visit the Food Pantry. All types of children's books are accepted.

All types of personal care items are needed in addition to food at the Food Pantry, including laundry soap, deodorant, diapers, shampoo and conditioner, toilet paper, tooth paste, tooth brushes, etc.

Value of your Donation
While we cannot tell you how much your donation is worth, we found this site from another organization useful for making your own valuation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
