JUNE 10-14

Join us for the 7th annual Street Music Week where local musicians will entertain along College Ave. to raise cash for Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin and help fight hunger in our community.

In the last six years, Street Music Week has raised nearly $16,000! Every $1 raised provides up to three meals for those in need. To help us reach our $10,000 goal this year, simply stroll College Ave., jam out and drop your cash donations in the orange buckets.

The Downtown Appleton Heid Music Summer Concert Series is back by popular demand, with Feeding America volunteers in attendance on Thursday night (June 13, 5:30-8:30 p.m.)

The Saturday-morning Farm Market (June 15, 8:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) in Downtown Appleton provides yet another opportunity for you to give. You'll see volunteers toting large orange donation buckets through the crowds.

Donate at Participating Downtown Appleton Businesses that have partnered with us to feature donation buckets throughout the week so that, as you shop and dine during the evening hours, you can help us reach our goal!
