Oleson’s Dollar Drive supports Safe Home needs

Dollar Drive enews

Oleson’s Food Stores in Petoskey and Charlevoix host a ‘Dollar Drive’ fundraiser for the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan’s (WRCNM) Safe Home, November 14-25.

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 Northwestern 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.

“We are grateful the community and Oleson’s Food Stores have generously supported Safe Home needs through this annual fundraiser,” said Safe Home Coordinator Leah Callan.  Funds raised help the agency buy perishable items such as milk, bread and eggs used on a daily basis by families staying at the Safe Home.

The Dollar Drive will take place at Oleson’s Food Stores at 2000 US-31 North in Petoskey, and 112 Antrim Street in Charlevoix.  Lite 96.3 will also hold a non-perishable food and supply drive at the Petoskey Oleson’s store from 4 to 6 p.m., Tuesday, November 23.
