Friendship Home Presents 20th Annual “Stuff the Bus” April 6–7
Friendship Home (www.friendshiphome.org) has once again partnered with StarTran, Alpha Media radio stations, Walmart, and Sam’s Club stores for the 20th annual Stuff the Bus event. Stuff the Bus is asking the Lincoln community to help stuff four StarTran buses full of new items needed by the families staying at Friendship Home. The items donated will stock shelter shelves for the coming year.
Friendship Home volunteers will be at all Lincoln Walmart and Sam’s Club stores on April 6 and 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., handing out needs lists to shoppers. Anyone is welcome to pick up a list, choose some items to purchase, and help “stuff the bus,” which will be parked outside the store. Cash donations are also accepted.
Friendship Home is Lincoln’s only safe, confidential emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. Services include emergency and transitional shelter, as well as supportive services, through safety planning, crisis intervention, support groups, and mental health counseling. To access safe shelter and services, call (402) 437-9302. More information about the Stuff the Bus event can be found online at www.friendshiphome.org.
