Stuff the Bus
Stuff the Bus
The Lincoln community literally “stuffed” the bus during the Stuff the Bus event on April 15th & 16th. Thank you to all the volunteers and countless community members, all four StarTran buses were stuffed full of highly needed items for survivors of domestic violence.
Safe Quarters is a one-day, community-wide effort to collect financial contributions for survivors of domestic violence and their children seeking refuge at Friendship Home. Safe Quarters also exists to raise awareness of domestic violence in Lincoln and Lancaster County and as well as the resources that are available to assist survivors.
Each year in October, over one hundred teams of dedicated volunteers go door-to-door collecting financial contributions for Friendship Home from houses in the Lincoln and neighboring communities. Volunteers are equipped with collection buckets and informational materials about Friendship Home and domestic violence.
Safe Quarters is Friendship Home’s largest fundraising event of the year and is held each Fall!Funds collected provide a safe, confidential shelter, crisis services and ongoing support for families who are rebuilding their lives free from violence. Safe Quarters is vital to Friendship Home’s doors remaining open to those in need.
