This holiday season we want to give back and WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The Downtown Middleton Business Association (DMBA) has teamed up with the Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM) to help prevent homelessness and end hunger. MOM was established in 1980 and since then has grown and evolved into the amazing organization it is today. MOM leads a "community-wide effort to prevent homelessness and end hunger for people throughout Middleton, West Madison and Cross Plains. Through the support of business partners, area schools and faith communities, as well as numerous individuals and service organizations, MOM provides - free of charge - food, clothing, housing assistance, emergency financial assistance, and special services for seniors."
This Holiday season there are two ways you can help the DMBA's MOM for the Holiday's Campaign become a success.
1. Purchase a limited edition MOM Ornament for $10. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to MOM. You can pick up a red or white (or both) ornament at z.bella boutique anytime between now and the end of the year!
2. Donate items to the food drive. Over a dozen downtown Middleton businesses are participating in the MOM for the Holidays food drive. MOM's food pantry distributes roughly 200 bags of food each day they are open. The food pantry relies on donations from neighbors and people like you. So stop by z.bella (or one of the several other participating) businesses with your donation today!
Most needed items include:
- Macaroni and Cheese
- Meals in a Box
- Meals in a Can (chili, beef stew)
- Diapers Sizes 4, 5 and 6
- Laundry Detergent
Plus, MOM is always in need of quality bedding items such as comforters, sheets, blankets and towels.
