Holiday Food Drive 2022


Dane county is experiencing a shortage of food items at local pantries. We encourage you this holiday season to give back to these pantries!

From December 5th to January 1st, we will be taking donations for Second Harvest Food Bank, Middleton Outreach Ministry, and the River Food Pantry. This includes non-perishable food items, winter clothing, kitchenware, personal care, and hygiene items.

Cash and check donations are encouraged! Please make a check out to your pantry of choice and mail it to us. Every $10 you give provides up to 25 meals.

Please drop off donations at the First Weber Middleton office entrance – 7979 Greenway Blvd. Middleton, WI 53562. There will be donation barrels at the entrance. We are also more than happy to pick up donations! Please call, text or email us to arrange for a pick-up.
