TeamMates Working to Warm Up Lincoln
In January of 2018 TeamMates (teammates.org) mentors and mentees set out with the goal to make over 100 fleece scarves for Lincoln agencies that provide services to support the homeless and near-homeless in our community. With wind chills as low as -20 degrees so far this year, staying warm is a constant battle. By collaborating with other agencies serving Lincoln including CEDARS, The HUB, People’s City Mission, and Community Action, TeamMates has successfully helped to warm-up Lincoln by spreading scarves and the spirit of giving across our city.
TeamMates mentors make a difference. By just showing up, these mentors demonstrate to students the importance of community involvement, but projects like TeamMates’ no-sew scarves for the homeless allow mentors to engage students in a real-world way. Mentors model integrity and stewardship to their mentees. To learn more about how TeamMates is transforming lives, go to www.LincolnTeamMates.org/SB or call (402) 436-1990.
