Mother’s Day Event
To volunteer for our Mother’s Day event, click here!
We need your help to make Mother’s Day a reality for thousands of Lincoln’s low-income families. On Saturday, May 3 from 10am to 1pm, our building will be crowded with parents and children who have come to select free Mother’s Day presents. At the event, parents wait while volunteer workers help the children select gifts, wrap, and tag their gifts. Then, on May 12, the kids and their families will get to experience the joy, pride, and self worth that come from celebrating Mother’s Day.
Many volunteers are needed to make this event possible, if you are interested in helping us on May 3, click here to sign up to volunteer.
2014 Resource Handbooks
Each year, the Center for People in Need releases a Resource Handbook that lists services for low-income residents. Contained in these books is information about food distributions, emergency housing, health care information, and clothing assistance, along with information for many other services.
