For the sixth year in a row, Pastor Tom and People City Mission (PCM, Only251.org) are going for 24 hours without food, sleep or shelter, advocating for the homeless. Thursday and Friday, June 15 and 16, 9 a.m. to 9 a.m., PCM staff and friends will be outside of HyVee at 84th and Holdrege. PCM is partnering with Alpha Media, and several local radio personalities will be on site throughout the event – The Eagle 92.9, Kx96.9, Mix103.3, 104.1 The Blaze and KFOR.
The theme of the event is Hawaiian! Pastor Tom is known for his iconic Hawaiian shirts and the shaka hand sign used to express friendship, gratitude, goodwill, encouragement and unity – all things PCM hopes to encourage in the community. They invite everyone in the to come by and visit with Pastor Tom for a photo and a chat. Donations of water will be encouraged and accepted on site.
People’s City Mission was started in 1907 by local churches, offering food and shelter for transient and impoverished men, women and children. In 1987, PCM moved to their current location and now house 350 men, women, and children nightly in their emergency shelters and the Curtis Center transitional housing program. As Lincoln’s homeless shelter, People’s City Mission’s work is more than 97% funded by community donations. For more information or to donate, visit Only251.org or call (402) 475-1303.
