Together for Lincoln partners with local organizations

[September 19, 2009]  For nearly a year, the organizers of Together for Lincoln have planned on serving the community of Lincoln through service projects. Now, due to the proactive thinking of local organizations, Together for Lincoln will also be able to help put food on the table and clothes on the back for local citizens.

InsuranceThe organizers of the Logan County CROP Walk approached Together for Lincoln organizers with the idea of partnering to help fill local food pantries. Since the mission of Together for Lincoln is "coming together for the common good," the leaders of both organizations quickly agreed to work together.

So, on Sept. 27, community members who are coming to the Together for Lincoln worship service are invited to bring canned goods. The food will be distributed equally among the local food pantries. The community worship service will be at 7 p.m. at the Lincoln Christian University chapel. A truck and trailer will be parked in front of the chapel, and people bringing canned goods can simply place the goods in the truck and trailer.

Together for Lincoln was also approached by Lincoln Christian Church about partnering in a clothing swap. This is an opportunity for community members to bring clothes to give away, or to come and receive clothes at no cost. The clothing swap will take place on Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Lincoln Christian Church Fellowship Center. People bringing clothes to give away are asked to bring them to the church's Fellowship Center on Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Together for Lincoln leadership team is expecting to have around 100 community projects and 1,000 volunteers from at least 16 churches serving in the community on Sept. 27. People who wish to volunteer but have not yet signed up should arrive at Latham Park after 10 a.m. on Sept. 27, and they will be assigned a project then. People who have already signed up to volunteer should receive a phone call in the coming week to let them know where they will be serving.
