Skaalen Retirement Services is one of Dane County’s largest long-term and rehabilitative care facilities, and provides a continuum of nursing care, restorative therapy and housing options to more than 800 older adults and their families every year. Located on a 110-acre campus in Stoughton, Wisconsin, Skaalen offers Christian-based care through the support of staff, member congregations and on-site pastoral care staff.
We have a long history of supporting and ministering to the elderly at the Skaalen Home in Stoughton. Our pastors have been members of the Board of Directors. We provide pastoral and lay visitation to the elderly as well as multiple opportunities to volunteer at the home.
We seek to provide for the hungry in our community by supporting the McFarland Food Pantry. We invite the members and friends of this congregation to provide monetary support as well as volunteers. And we collect dry and canned goods in a grocery cart located by the main offices.
The McFarland Community Food Pantry is located at 5307 Hough Street in McFarland. Normal pantry hours are 3 – 6 pm on Mondays. Participants are encouraged to come during those hours. The building will not be opened before the volunteer staff arrives. Transportation to the pantry for seniors will be offered twice a month. Home-delivered groceries will be available to homebound or people without transportation.
