Adopt a Fresh Start Resident for the Holidays
Fresh Start (www.freshstarthome.org) is seeking help in making the holidays brighter for its 24 female residents. You can help by adopting one or more of the residents and purchasing gifts for the upcoming holiday season. Specific wish list items include gift cards to local restaurants, movie tickets, specialty treats, and more. More gift ideas can be found on the Fresh Start website below.
“The women living at Fresh Start are committed to turning their lives around,” said Monica Zinke, Fresh Start executive director. “Each of them are here for different reasons, but it’s our hope that this holiday season we can show them there are people in the community rooting for their success. Christmas presents are a small way to show them that Lincoln truly cares about each of them.”
Fresh Start is a non-profit transitional housing program for women that empowers them to change their lives by recognizing and overcoming barriers to self-sufficiency. Since its formation in 1991, over 1,600 women have called Fresh Start home. Learn more at www.freshstarthome.org, call (402) 475-7777, or find Fresh Start on Facebook.
