Welcome to Center for People in Need. Providing resources, opportunity, and hope to one person and one family at a time.
The Holiday season is a time of joy and memories for many families, but for those with a limited income, this time of year risks turning into another painful reminder of how often they have to go without. At the Center for People in Need, our annual Toyland for Kids, helps make sure that every child in Lincoln can enjoy the holiday season and have a toy to wake up to. Toyland 2013 will run from Saturday December 14, through Monday, December 16th (complete times listed at the bottom of the article).
Last year, the Center for People in Need helped nearly 11,000 children from 3,500 low income families receive gifts. With so many families in need, we cannot put on this event without the help of many in the community. We hope that you will consider volunteering your time or a new toy to help ensure that all families in our community can share in the holiday celebrations.
