CHRISTIAN FAMILY RADIO Christian AC WEMI-WEMY/APPLETON, WI recently partnered with local WFRV-TV Channel 5 and FESTIVAL FOOD STORES for CHRISTIAN FAMILY RADIO’s 16th Annual “Help for the Homeless” campaign. The campaign received more than $70,000 worth of new personal hygiene and cleaning products, tripling last year’s donations and providing enough to restock shelves of 33 area homeless programs. In some cases, the donations covered a year’s worth of supplies.
The campaign encouraged area residents to help neighbors in need by working directly with the homeless coalitions in BROWN COUNTY, the FOX VALLEY, WINNEBAGO COUNTY, FOND DU LAC and MANITOWOC. The number of participants also broke records this year with more than 250 area businesses, schools and churches contributing to the $73,600 worth of product.
