Little Red Wagon

  • The Mission Church 314 North Appleton Street Appleton, WI, 54911 United States (map)

The Little Red Wagon Foundation is a "kids helping kids" outreach to the homeless. In our area alone, over 500 kids entered a shelter in 2014. We want to make that easier for them by making "Zach Packs", welcome bags for all kids who come. Our goal is to make 300 Zach Packs to give to Harbor House and Homeless Connections. Can you help?

Friday, April 22 there will be a FREE Homelessness Simulation and movie screening of Little Red Wagon at The Mission Church. It is the true story of Zach Bonner. He was 8 years old when he started helping kids who were homeless. Zach Bonner will be there in person.
