Canstruction Thank You!
On behalf of all the individuals we serve at MOM, I would like to thank all who participated and supported our fifth Canstruction® Madison event that was held at West Town Mall recently with the theme “Calling all Super Heroes”. This friendly competition lets teams utilize their talents and ingenuity to build unique structures out of non-perishable food for fabulous trophies and bragging rights. Congratulations to all the teams that won those coveted trophies and all the teams that participated! You are all Super Heroes in our eyes!
The real winners of this competition are the many people we serve each and every day at the MOM Food Pantry. All of the food and cash contributions that were part of Canstruction ® Madison allow us to meet the increased demands that we see throughout the summer months because kids are out of school and food needs increase at home. Many in our community don’t realize that 1 out every 5 children in the Middleton Cross Plains Area School District need a little help to ensure that they have affordable & healthy meals available to them during the school year. When these same children aren’t in school, it can often mean empty stomachs. Because of the generosity of individuals, businesses, churches and many civic organizations that support MOM, we continue to be able to meet the increased needs of our neighbors and friends that come to us for help.
Together we do make a difference, one household – and one can! – at a time.
