Food drive for People's City Mission Sunday

This Sunday DiscoveryZone will be hosting a food drive that supports the People’s City Mission Distribution Center.

The Distribution Center is a warehouse facility that distributes items such as food, clothing, personal care needs, furniture, household goods and appliances to the poor and near homeless. It is open six days a week, and located in downtown Lincoln, which is in close proximity to many of the people using these services.

In 2004, the Mission distributed over 600,000 meals, more than 63,000 articles of clothing, slightly over 35,000 pieces of furniture, and tons of fresh produce. These efforts helped over 10,000 people in the city. Many of the people coming to the Distribution Center are living at, or below the poverty line. They include individuals who are refugees, unemployed, physically and mentally handicapped, struggling with affordable housing, and/or unable to earn a living wage. We estimate there are more than 20,000 people suffering from poverty in the surrounding area of Lincoln.

We would like to invite you to partner with us on this project. If you are able to bring one of the items listed above we encourage you to do so. All items will be collected in the BOB this Sunday at both services. Please pray for those who depend on this ministry.
