FCEMF – Help for the Homeless starts Feb. 22

If your church is not already participating in Help for the Homeless we’d love to have your help – there’s no such thing as ‘too much’ because 15 local crisis agencies are depending on the donations. Our goal is to stock their shelves with a year’s worth of toiletry and cleaning items. This goal is met for about half of the agencies, but the larger ones like Salvation Army, LEAVEN, and the Emergency Shelter. of the Fox Valley run out of supplies much sooner.

Please join with 200+ Fox Cities area churches, businesses, schools, government offices, and libraries that will be collecting donations for our local crisis agencies from Feb. 22 – March 17.

When we provide these items than the agencies can dedicate their limited financial resources to providing qualified personnel, safe housing, nutritious food, education, and counseling to those they serve.

Should you decide to join us, I’m attaching the following to help make your participation as easy and enjoyable for you as possible. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED ANYTHING ELSE.

o A sample blurb (includes logos too) for you to cut and paste into organizational bulletins or emails

o A list of the Fox Cities agencies we’re helping, and their most urgently needed items.

o A full sheet color flier with a list of all requested items on side #2

o A half sheet black and white flier with list of all requested items on side #2

( For the asking, I can also send an updated H4H Power Point presentation, Avery #5963 labels for change jars/cans, a ‘donate here’ flier.)

· The Help for the Homeless web page includes a “Help for the Homeless Info Kit” filled with resources to promote the event, including samples of compelling thank you notes.

· Please email me, Heidi Prahl, at or call me 920-749-9364 to be added to the list of collection sites. I will arrange for your collection box/es (complete with poster) to be dropped off by an Appleton Fox Cities Kiwanis volunteer between Feb. 19-21. It will be collected again between March 18-21.

If your box should happen to spill over, please store all of the products until they can be picked up (we have limited space and volunteer help). Then on pick-up day, please make sure everything has been gathered together for collection.

Thank you so much, and please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions or concerns. 749-9364

I’ll be in touch.

Sincere thanks again on behalf of the thousands of our Fox Cities neighbors who you’ll be helping!
