WEMI Help for the Homeless

WEMI/Appleton, WI (The Family Radio Network) announces the results of their 2017 “Help for the Homeless” hygiene drive. Friends and neighbors donated a record-breaking $377,000 worth of new hygiene and cleaning products to their local crisis programs in 15 Northeast and Central Wisconsin communities.

The Family works with area homeless coalitions, inviting people to donate hygiene and cleaning items to their local crisis programs to help them direct their limited funds to providing qualified staff, counseling, shelter, and food to those they serve.

820 local businesses, churches and schools participated by placing collection boxes in their high traffic areas and inviting their own staff, members and students to donate for 3 weeks this spring.
