Pillars Giving Tree – Appleton

Pillars Giving Tree – Appleton

Each year, nearly 2,000 people benefit from Pillars crisis shelter and supportive/affordable housing programs, including street outreach, crisis housing, case management and diversion from homelessness. Together, we are rebuilding lives and strengthening our community.

Last year we changed the way in which we were doing Giving Tree, due to staff shortages and found that implementing a system where we had drop-off times helped us a lot. As this allowed us to focus our main attention on the clients who need our support. We want to thank you in advance for being flexible and for continuing to support those in our community who need it most!

If you would like to support Pillars by doing a donation drive during the holiday season, we are so grateful! Below are a few ways to create your own Giving Tree!

Items can be brought to the Pillars Community Room, 609 E Hancock Street, at the following times/dates:
