The need is greater than you think... In 2013 to 2014, 54.4% of Madison's public school students were eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. As childhood poverty increases, it becomes harder and harder for families to find the resources to purchase the supplies needed to send their children back to school.

You can help!

• Visit one of the Madison area HyVee stores to purchase or drop off new, unused school supplies in the blue collection barrels:
        º East - 3801 E Washington Ave, Madison 53704
        º West - 675 S Whitney Way, Madison 53711
        º Fitchburg - 2920 Fitchrona Rd, Fitchburg 53719
