Sharing Warmth with Our Community
When winter arrives, our Clothing Center helps provide warm winter items including coats, snow pants, hats, gloves and boots to people who need them in our community. This year, Middleton Tourism Board’s, Big Bundle Up provided MOM with lots of warm winter gear. With our Clothing Center now open by appointment only, clients have still been able to find what they need to keep warm this winter.
Since we had enough to share, we wanted to make sure winter clothing reached other kids and adults in our community who need it. MOM Community Outreach Case Manager, Sitha Ok, connected with case managers at Lussier Community Education Center, MOM’s long-time partner, and provided winter gear for families they serve. MOM staff also reached out to school social workers and counselors in the Middleton Cross Plains Area School District. Several social workers and counselors from MCPASD elementary schools shopped at MOM’s clothing center for winter clothing for kids they work with. MOM provided the new Pope Farm School with warm winter gear just before the school opened its doors for the first time. We also reached out to school social workers in the Madison Metropolitan School District through the West High Collaborative and then to the MSCR Cares program. This program provides childcare to students during virtual learning and serves many kids who receive free and reduced lunch. MOM Clothing Center volunteers shopped for 11 MSCR Cares sites. They were very happy to receive winter clothing to help the kids stay toasty warm when playing outside this winter!
