It’s the time of year for giving back. The spokesperson of a local soup kitchen hopes Lincoln residents keep that caring thought in mind.
Gathering Place Program Administrator Lisa Janssen tells KLIN News their need is great…She says they served over 29,000 hot-nutritious evening meals to those struggling with hunger over the year.
This time of year is especially busy at the Gathering Place. Janssen says that donations from the community are needed to keep pace with the significant demand for hot meals. See stated Community Action is at nearly 85% of their fundraising goal, with $12,000 remaining to reach it.
Community Action’s Gathering Place hopes to receive the remaining $12,000 in contributions from the community by December 31, in order to claim the maximum $78,000 committed by its generous match sponsors.
