Middleton Outreach Ministry (MOM’s) is my favorite place to drop off a client’s or my own clothing and linen donations. There are many worthy donation centers in the Madison/Middleton, WI area, but MOM’s is a bit unique.
It’s unique because, all the items at MOM’s are FREE for the clients they serve. That’s right, FREE. MOM’s mission is preventing homelessness and ending hunger through their food pantry, clothing closet and a multitude of other services.
I’m crazy about volunteering in the MOM’s clothing closet because my volunteer duties include sorting and hanging clothing donations. This is right up my alley as an organizer!
I love seeing clients “shop” in the closet. One client even stated, “I had to become poor to get clothing this nice!” Even though most clients are under a lot of stress due to their circumstances, they are usually smiling as they “shop.”
There are a few organizations, in just about any large community, that provide free clothing to the needy. They need your donations. Consider taking a look in your closets today. What can you donate that will bring a smile to someone in need?
