City of Schofield is Now a Drop-Off Location for Peyton's Promise

Septembers’s Items of the Month:

Rice and Granola Bars

Peyton’s Promise was founded in 2007 by an eight year old girl, Peyton Medick, who discovered there were kids in her hometown of Weston, WI that went to bed hungry every night. Peyton’s Promise has grown into a huge organization with hundreds of volunteers and over 50 trained advocates working in their schools, and throughout the United States, to organize food drives and raise awareness about the problem of hunger.

Peyton’s Promise has 3 objectives:
  • To raise awareness about the problem of hunger.
  • To keep food pantries shelves full.
  • To fight childhood obesity.

Our organization has many different programs in place to collect food and we encourage the donation of healthier options. We encourage donations of our “Item of the Month” in our drop box locations, located throughout our community.

Every item has the potential to make a difference in our community. Donations stay within Marathon County.

“Thank you for Making the World a Better Place, one can at a time.”
