Ending Homelessness in the Fox Valley

Help for the Homeless Has Record-Breaking Year

Posted on Apr 29, 2015 by
Each year, COTS participates in 91.9/91.5 

The Family’s “Help for the Homeless” hygiene drive, and each year, we are absolutely blown away by the tremendous amount of support provided by our neighbors! This year, $157,000 worth of hygiene products was collected through the drive, which is up more than $5,000 from last year’s record of $151,509. COTS is so grateful to be one of the 17 area crisis agencies that benefited from this community-wide effort.

“We are, once again, simply overwhelmed by the generosity of this community. I wish that everyone who gave to Help for the 
Homeless could see the looks on our residents’ faces as the items were brought into our agency, knowing they could have fresh razors, 
deodorant, and other essential items. Most importantly, they know that they are part of a community that supports them and cares about their well-being. We cannot thank you enough.” -Andrew Wilson, COTS Executive Director

Thanks again to everyone in our community who played a role in making this year’s “Help for the Homeless” drive such a huge success!
