Over $604,000 worth of new hygiene and cleaning supplies now stock the shelves of 121 crisis programs in 20 communities across Wisconsin. The Family Radio Network thanks over 1,000 businesses, churches, and schools who hosted collection boxes – and all those who so generously donated these products to help their local crisis programs. We partner with area crisis programs and homeless coalitions by inviting the community to donate needed hygiene and cleaning items for their local agencies through the Help for the Homeless Hygiene Drive. These donations make it possible for local crisis programs to direct their limited financial resources to provide qualified staff, safe housing, nutritious food, education, and counseling to those they serve.

Since 1992, The Family Radio Network’s Help for the Homeless Hygiene Drive has provided more than 6 million dollars’ worth of hygiene and cleaning supplies for local Wisconsin crisis programs, with donations remaining in the communities where they are collected.
