Help for the Homeless
"Help for the Homeless" Hygiene Drive
Donate at Festival, Walgreens, or Shopko by March 15!
Goal: A year's worth of supplies for local crisis agencis and those they serve.
"Growing up in extreme poverty, I was picked on by my peers for the way I smelled, and my ratty hair. When my 5th grade teacher gave me a bag containing shampoo, conditioner and a stick of deodorant, I had to ask what the deodorant was for - I'd never seen any before. The pride and joy I felt after that, at being able to raise my arms without smelling odor, was a tremendous boost to my confidence! (I still love keeping a variety of deodorants to choose from!)" Elizabeth S., Social Work Grad Student More stories
The Family’s ‘Help for the Homeless’ hygiene drive works with area homeless coalitions to stock the shelves of 79 homeless and crisis programs in 13 Wisconsin communities in our listening areas. The goal of Help for the Homeless is to supply a year’s worth of product to each agency (In many cases, this is happening!). Donations remain in the communities where they are collected.
Appleton/Fox Cities, Berlin, Brillion, Chilton, Fond du Lac, Green Bay/Brown County, Manitowoc, Marshfield, Oconto/Marinette, Oshkosh, Rhinelander/Crandon/Antigo, Waupaca, and Wausau
