Hallman/Lindsay Paints donated more than $5,500 to local food pantries across Wisconsin in honor of its customers during this past holiday season. In each community where Hallman/Lindsay has a store location, including the City of Middleton, a local food pantry received a donation.

“As a local Wisconsin business, we are a part of the community,” says Tim Mielcarek, owner of Hallman/Lindsay. “We consider it part of Hallman/Lindsay’s mission to contribute to the places where we live and work.”

In December, John DeVries, manager of the Hallman/Lindsay store in Middleton, met with Debbie Kutchin from Middleton Outreach Ministry to deliver the company donation.

“Food prices continue to rise, and we know that food pantries are also continuing to see increases in demand,” said DeVries. “Middleton Outreach Ministry provides much-needed assistance in this community, and we are happy to support their work.”

Hallman Lindsay has been making donations to local food banks since 2009 when the recession was in full swing. In addition to financially supporting pantries, six Hallman Lindsay stores are holding holiday food drives. The Middleton store as well as locations in Monona, Madison, Green Bay, Minocqua, and Oconomowoc collected food for their local food banks.
