A big thank you to Appleton Alliance Church for making LEAVEN the recipient of this fun day of dodge-ball. Thank you to the many volunteers for their dedication to the event and a special thank you to the The Meat Block for donating all of the hot dogs for the event.
Help for the Homeless Hygiene Donations Top $225,000
The goal of our Help for the Homeless hygiene drive is to supply local crisis agencies with an entire year’s worth of products so that they can direct their limited financial resources towards providing qualified personnel, safe housing, nutritious food, education, and counseling to those they serve. This spring, more than $225,000 worth of hygiene and cleaning products were collected and donated to area crisis agencies in 10 participating communities. Donations are now snugly tucked away on the storage shelves of 51 Northeast Wisconsin crisis agencies. Donations stay in the communities where they are collected. The Fox Cities community donated $100,000 worth of these items. They're staying right here to serve our neighbors in need. Way to go Fox Cities!
(LEAVEN Volunteers helped collect a trailer full, a pick up truck and a car full of items for LEAVEN clients.)
