Ways to Support Community

Here at MESBA, we’re always seeking ways that businesses can help ‘elevate all the boats’ in our community. Below is a list of organizations MESBA supports and you can support too.

Operation Giving Hope –  an initiative started by Detective Maya, a Madison Police Officer, who saw first hand the homeless families living in hotels. The children often do not even have clothes or shoes so any donations are helpful.One of the keys to preventing homelessness is stopping the cycle. Helping these children get an education is a large factor. Back to school supplies are always needed! Donations can be dropped off at the East Madison Police Department located at 809 S. Thompson Drive.

The River Food Pantry – Dane County’s largest food pantry located near the Dane County Regional Airport. The River is always seeking volunteers to serve those in need at the pantry. If your business would like to provide a team building or give back experience for your employees, please call Amy Lord, Development Director, at The River at (608) 661-1224.
