Madison Chamber’s fundraiser to feed the frontline a bigger success than expected

MADISON – The staff at the Madison Chamber of Commerce rewarded those on the frontline of the current COVID-19 crisis last week. They recently created a fundraiser to feed healthcare professionals, police department, fire department and HEMSI staff in the Madison community.

According to Chamber Member Relations Manager Merrill Wright, the call for help was met with overwhelming success.

“Our original goal was $600 and we passed that within the first couple of days, and then we have raised it to $1,500,” she said. The total for the campaign ended up being $3,000 raised.

For every $15 someone contributed they received a #madisonalstrong shirt.

“We thought this would be a great way for the community to help feed the frontline from the comfort of their own homes,” she said.

On Friday, April 24, Wright delivered the gift cards to the Madison Police, Madison Fire and Rescue and HEMSI. This week they provided meals to the staff at Madison Hospital.
