Friendship Home Celebrating 15 Years of Safe Quarters
On October 8, over a thousand Friendship Home (www.friendshiphome.org) volunteers will head out to Lincoln neighborhoods with the goal of knocking on the door of every household to collect financial contributions for victims of domestic violence.
Safe Quarters is Friendship Home’s largest annual fundraiser. $109,000 was raised last year and as a result, Friendship Home was able to change 1,600 lives. This will be the 15th year the entire Lincoln community participates in this event.
Teams of volunteers are needed to walk Lincoln neighborhoods on Sunday, October 8th. A team generally consists of 8-12 members and all ages are encouraged to participate. Volunteers will receive t-shirts and collection buckets for the drive.
You can help provide “safe quarters” to someone in crisis. To register a volunteer team, visit www.friendshiphome.org. For questions and/or more information about Safe Quarters, contact Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 434-0167.
Funds collected during Safe Quarters provide safe confidential shelter, crisis services and ongoing support for families who are rebuilding their lives because of domestic violence. To access safe shelter and services, call (402) 437-9302.
