Each week, over 400 Marathon County families visit The Neighbors' Place for groceries, personal care items, diapers and basic needs items. We need your help to keep the shelves stocked with a variety of items. Hosting a drive is a great way to get involved, promote awareness about community needs, and help a neighbor. It also makes for a fun class or team-building project!
Donations can be dropped off:
