For many years, St. John’s has been a proud participant in The Family’s annual “Help for the Homeless” hygiene drive in Brown County.

What is it?

The “Help for the Homeless” hygiene drive is a collection of hygiene items in Wisconsin communities. This drive is benfitting Brown County. Items are collected at participating businesses. Then Brown County homeless and crisis programs sort the items and distribute the supplies to the organizations who need them, right in our community. Donations of supplies and financial support raised through the hygiene drive will be used in the community where they come from.

When is it?

This year’s hygiene drive runs February 14 – March 7.
