Friendship Home’s Safe Quarters Volunteer Registration is Now Open
On Sunday, October 6, over a thousand Friendship Home (www.friendshiphome.org) volunteers will head out to Lincoln and surrounding neighborhoods for Safe Quarters, with the goal of knocking on every household door to collect financial contributions for victims of domestic violence. Safe Quarters is Friendship Home’s largest annual fundraiser. Over $100,000 was raised last year and, as a result, Friendship Home was able to save and change the lives of over 1,500 victims of domestic violence. This will be the 17th year the Lincoln community participates in this event.
Teams of volunteers are needed to walk Lincoln neighborhoods. A team generally consists of eight to 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.
Funds collected during Safe Quarters go towards Friendship Home’s mission to provide safe, confidential shelter, crisis services, and ongoing support for families who have experience domestic violence and are rebuilding their lives. To access safe emergency shelter and services, call Friendship Home’s helpline at (402) 437-9302. Learn more about services and how to get involved by going to www.friendshiphome.org.
