Sponsored by 91.9 FM The Family.  The ‘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. Last season, generous community members donated $377,500 worth of laundry soap, shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant,etc. to their local crisis programs.

Donations remain in the communities where they are collected.
