Help for the Homeless



Drop donations off at local Festival Foods or Walgreens Stores.


The Family’s annual ‘Help for the Homeless’ hygiene drive works with area homeless coalitions every spring to stock the shelves of 80+ homeless and crisis programs in 19 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 at 900+ businesses, churches, and schools hosted collection boxes and 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 of supplies and financial support will be used in the community where they come from.
