I consider MOM to be a valuable community partner. Their food pantry, backpack giveaway event, and mobile food pantry programs are incredible. I often collaborate with the Distribution Center Manager on various projects and donations and all have been rewarding experiences. Likewise, all of the MOM staff and volunteers I have come in contact over the past few years have always been extremely professional, innovative, generous and helpful. MOM is an indispensable resource many people depend on for essential supplies but also one that provides many volunteer opportunities for members of the community. I feel lucky to actively collaborate with the Middleton Outreach Ministry staff and look forward to future endeavors.

I am a Community Social Worker with Joining Forces for Families that shares an office with MOM. This is a well organized, thoughtful, and generous resource for the community. I have partnered with MOM social workers with families and it has ALWAYS been efficient and helpful. I don't know what we would do without this valuable resource!

I have been involved for almost 10 years as a donor and volunteer at MOM, and I have come to appreciate the outstanding work that this organization accomplishes in our community. The services to the clients has greatly improved as MOM moved to a new, larger facility. The clients appreciate the well-stocked Food Pantry and Clothing Closet which they may visit as often as needed. And, the services provided by the case managers and other MOM staff members is invaluable. As a volunteer, I see and hear the appreciative responses from the clients. I, too, feel very strongly connected to Middleton Outreach as it continues its vital presence in our area.

I have been involved with M.O.M. for nearly 16 years, in the capacity of donor, board member, food pantry volunteer, and driver for the seniors program. I have seen the organization change and grow with the need on the west side of Madison and Middleton, but the one thing that remains is the passion the staff, volunteers and donors have for those in need in our area. I have heard firsthand from those we serve how grateful they are for the compassion and services that M.O.M. offers during some difficult times. I have seen people's lives improve to the point they no longer need us, and that is the best outcome of all. M.O.M. also offers the community a place to give back and feel connected to their neighbors.

M.O.M. provides a clothing and food pantry to qualified residents of west Madison and Middleton. They also provide counseling and other services to their clients through the many programs they offer. My favorite ones are the school backpack program for kids, Thanksgiving baskets and Christmas gift sharing. Our clients are so appreciative, and strive to become as self sufficient as possible. M.O.M. truly makes a difference in their lives.

I volunteer at numerous organizations and find that the MOM operation and staff are absolutely my favorite. Their generous, compassionate, kind and professional way of working with their clients, volunteers, donors and each other inspires me each time I am there. They make be feel valued and part of the team that is serving a diverse mix of clients in need from the community. I also love the clients and enjoy seeing the smiles on their faces even though they are sometimes going thru great personal stress. Thanks to the MOM staff for allowing me to be a small part of a truly great organization.

MOM is a wonderful organization dedicated to feeding the needy in the Middleton area.

I coordinate a fundraiser which sells mittens made out of recycled sweaters to raise funds for three local food pantries. The staff at MOM have gone above and beyond in their support of our event- even writing a press release for us! Thank you MOM

Middleton Outreach does just that. They reach out into our community, opening their doors and hands and hearts, and make life better for so many people. They're truly dedicated to helping those who are struggling in our area. We donate regularly to their clothing drive and food pantry. Our kids look forward to helping families during the holidays. MOM makes it easy to contribute and we have every confidence that our donations end up in the hands of our deserving neighbors. They collaborate and cooperate with countless area businesses, schools, and organizations. MOM is a trusted source of support, comfort, and advocacy in our area. I'm proud to voice my support for this outstanding organization.
