The Wisconsin State Journal featured an article about the hygiene supplies program created by MCPASD social workers for students in need and the partnership between the Education Foundation and Middleton Outreach Ministry to support it.

The article explains how the program started: “When schools went online last March, social workers in the district identified about 200 students who needed the items. Then they asked the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District Education Foundation for support in starting a program, and the organization raised $15,000 to begin a monthly distribution program last April.”

It also noted: “At the first distribution, social workers reported 50% more demand than expected and turned away about 100 students because supplies ran out. Continuing the program costs about $5,000 per month, and the foundation needed help to sustain the program on an ongoing basis. So it began a partnership with Middleton Outreach Ministry to alternate funding the program each month.”
