Have you ever been hungry – I mean really hungry, when you hadn’t had a meal all day or even longer?
Have you ever had food insecurity – wondering whether you will have enough food to last between now and the next time you have money to buy more?
How about shelter – have you ever wondered where you would sleep at night? Not in the adventurous “let’s wander the countryside” way; more of the “I don’t have anyplace to go and it’s getting dark” way.
Homelessness and food scarcity are real concerns in Wisconsin. There are over 4,500 Wisconsinites without a home right now. We are a strong and prosperous State, we have adequate resources, and we are smart people. We need to come together to solve the homelessness problem in Wisconsin.
Please help by buying a homeless person a $25 Badger Pack. This survival kit contains necessities that will help a person down on their luck. While it may not solve the problem entirely, it will help ameliorate the suffering in the short term.
You can make a contribution by going to The Go Fund me titled Wisconsin Newspapers Supporting Homelessness. 100% of your gift will go to supply resources to homeless people. I hope you can join us in this important and worthy effort.
