The Family’s annual Help for the Homeless hygiene drive works with area homeless coalitions every spring to stock the shelves of 90+ 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 products to each agency.

In 2021, generous community members at 750+ businesses, churches, and schools hosted collection boxes and donated $503,000 worth of laundry soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc. to their local crisis programs.

The drive has provided more than $4.2 million dollars worth of hygiene supplies to local crisis programs and those they serve over the past 30 years.

Donations of supplies and financial support will be used in the community where they come from.
