Info: Help for the Homeless

The Family Radio Network’s annual “Help for the Homeless” hygiene drive collects new, personal care items and cleaning products for area crisis agencies ... including The Family Center.

These are items that are not covered by those participating in WIC or FoodShare programs.


These donations help enable The Family Center

direct financial resources to help the clients we serve.


The goal of Help for the Homeless is to provide a year’s worth of supplies to each agency.  Donations will remain here in Wisconsin Rapids, and are shared between The Family Center, helping victims of domestic and sexual violence, and the South Wood County Emerging Pantry Shelf, helping those who are experiencing a short-term emergency in regard to food needs.

Thank you to these businesses for collecting donations!
