MIDDLETON–The Times-Tribune will once again be collecting school supplies for MOM’s (Middleton Outreach Ministry) Back to School program. 

“We are excited to help MOM raise donations for the school supply program again this year,” said Times-Tribune editor, Michelle Phillips. “Families are struggling even more to make ends meet with the increase in prices for goods, and we hope to collect more supplies than previous years to help fill that need.”

Those who would like to provide supplies can drop them off at the following locations: Rosemary Garfoot Public Library, 2107 Julius St., Cross Plains; Middleton Cross Plains Area School District central office, 7106 South Ave., Middleton; and MOM, 3502 Parmenter St., Middleton. If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please make checks payable to MOM and send it directly to them with the memo “School Supply Drive,” or visit their website: momhelpsorg to donate online.

This is the fourth year the Times-Tribune has held its school supply drive. “I hope that we can continue this service to the community for many years to come,” Phillips said.
