Stuff the Bus for Friendship Home 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 asks 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 9:30 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” parked outside the store. Cash donations and gift cards are also accepted. To learn more about this event, please visit www.friendshiphome.org.
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.
