Oleson’s Food Stores in Petoskey and Charlevoix are hosting a “Dollar Drive” to help support domestic abuse survivors and their children utilizing services at the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan’s Safe Home. The “Dollar Drive” takes place Sunday, November 12 through Thanksgiving Day. Dollars raised help purchase much needed perishable items used on a daily basis such as milk, bread and eggs.
The Safe Home is operated 24/7 and provides services at no cost to families in Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Emmet and Otsego counties. Last year, the Safe Home provided 3,000 nights of refuge and 9,000 meals to those in need.
The Dollar Drive is taking place at the Petoskey Oleson’s Food Store, 2000 US-31 North, and in Charlevoix at 112 Antrim Street. The Safe Home Needs List is available online at www.wrcnm.org.
