Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs is running a drive to re-stock supplies for our shelter and clients to get through the summer and fall

Appleton, WI – Warm weather and summer vacation do not often bring up images of clothing and supply drives – that’s what the Holiday Season is for. But shelters and programs like Harbor House have needs 24/7, 365 days a year.

Harbor House has an adopt-a-shelter program and an adopt-a-family program during the holidays that helps over 80 families each year and keeps the shelter stocked for months. With rising needs and the changing seasons, there is need for seasonal clothing, updated toys, and additional household and hygiene items.

“Having a summer supply and clothing drive would really help our clients meet their needs. Many clients come to us with only the clothing on their back, so having summer clothing right now means the world to them.” – Meagan LaGrone, Manager, Operations

Harbor House’s Spread Mid-Year Cheer drive will go through the month of July. Our current needs are updated weekly and kept on our website: https://www.harborhousewi.org/current-needs/.

“We live in an incredibly generous community that rises up again and again to meet the needs of Harbor House clients.  As we see ever increasing needs among our clients, we are thankful to the community for participating in our mid-year cheer donation drive to help victim-survivors find both safety and healing that begins with meeting their basic needs and allowing them to have clothes and bedding to call their own.”

– Amber Schroeder, Executive Director
