This winter With A Purpose donated 640 blankets to a nonprofit in Lincoln, NE serving those in poverty and affected by homelessness (including veterans) in their community called People's City Mission. Thanks to those who purchased from the Nebraska Cornhuskers Blanket for a Blanket program, individuals in need were provided with warmth this season. Through the Buy a Blanket, Give a Blanket initiative, With a Purpose gives a blanket locally for each blanket purchased.
"Thanks again for such a wonderful donation to our guests!", exclaimed Pastor Tom Barber of People's City Mission in Nebraska.
Originally started by a group of local churches, the nonprofit has been and continues to be about community-lead service. For over a hundred years, they have provided food, clothing, shelter and emergency services to the needy in Lincoln. Many of the staff involved in their numerous programs are volunteers lending their talents and time, including the mission's Free Medical Clinic.
With over 10% of Nebraskans living in poverty, People's City Mission is a blessing to the 30,000 that they serve each year. Lincoln's community-wide effort is a beacon of love for those in need. Read more Blanket Drop Stories here.
