People’s City Mission (PCM, will once again be serving a full Thanksgiving meal to not only the homeless in Lincoln, but to anyone who would otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving and could use a meal. Meals will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. PCM expects to serve 700 meals.

PCM’s Help Center will also be giving away 500 Thanksgiving meal baskets to those in need. Giveaway will take place on Thursday, November 17, from 9 a.m. – noon, or until supplies run out.

If you would like to help, PCM is accepting donations of frozen turkeys, pies, and ingredients for side dishes (no prepared sides, please). Donations can be dropped off at the Shelter at 110 Q St. or at the Help Center at 6800 P St., preferably by Friday, November 11.

One more way to help is to buy just one meal for a homeless person. A meal only costs PCM $2.77. You can go to their website at and click “DONATE” to purchase a meal.

People’s City Mission was started in 1907 by local churches, offering food and shelter for transient and impoverished men, women, and children. Today, the People’s City Mission is Lincoln’s primary homeless shelter housing 350 people on an average day. They greatly appreciate your continued support of Lincoln’s most vulnerable.
