Oleson’s Dollar Drive supports Safe Home needs

Olesons Dollar Drive

Oleson’s Food Stores in Petoskey and Charlevoix are hosting a ‘Dollar Drive’ fundraiser for the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan’s (WRCNM) Safe Home, November 13-24.

During the drive, shoppers may choose to donate a dollar at checkout to support Safe Home needs. The Oleson Foundation, a foundation designed to continually perform good works in northwest lower Michigan, will match the first $1,000 in donations.

The Safe Home provides 24/7 shelter, meals and support services at no cost to survivors of domestic abuse and their family members in Emmet, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Otsego and Antrim counties.

Oleson’s Food Stores have supported Safe Home needs through this annual benefit for more than 12 years. Funds raised help Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan staff buy perishable items such as milk, bread and eggs used daily by families staying at the Safe Home.

The Safe Home Dollar Drive takes place at Oleson’s Food Stores located at 2000 US-31 North in Petoskey and 112 Antrim Street in Charlevoix.
