Thanks to a recent wellness walk at Tomah Health, struggling families in the Tomah area have access to some important items at The Caring Closet.

A number of Tomah Health staff donated two carts of items… including diapers and school supplies…  during a ‘Wellness Walk and Give Back Event’ held last week coordinated by the hospital’s Infusion Services and Women’s Health Service Departments.

Caring Closet president Danielle Calhoun said donations like those made by Tomah Health are ‘extremely important’ for the Tomah nonprofit organization.

Located at 903 Superior Avenue in the former downtown Tomah post office building, Calhoun said the organization has been in operation about three years assisting foster parents and families with children birth through three- years- old.

She said The Caring Closet works with different agencies in the area to help supply clothing, diapers, bedding, toys and bags. Calhoun said area social workers put families in touch with her to help meet the need, which has been great lately.

She said anyone in need of assistance or interested in donating items can contact her via their Facebook page or by calling 608-343-1652.
