“Many of our clients arrive afraid, depressed, and embarrassed to ask for help. They are very grateful for the personal care items we can offer them. These donated supplies not only help them with their immediate needs, but they also demonstrate that our community cares about them.” – LEAVEN More Stories 2020
The Family’s annual ‘Help for the Homeless’ hygiene drive works with area homeless coalitions every spring to stock the shelves of 89 homeless and crisis programs in 15 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!). In 2020, generous community members donated $428,000 worth of laundry soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc. to their local crisis programs. In its 28th year, the drive has provided more than $3.7 million dollars’ worth of hygiene supplies to local crisis programs and those they serve. Donations remain in the communities where they are collected. SAVE THE DATE! Help for the Homeless will be back Feb. 14 – March 7, 2021.
