[April 27, 2011]
Together for Lincoln is busy rallying
the troops and aligning strategies in preparation for the Round 4
Project Day set for Sept. 25. In the first three rounds, Together
for Lincoln, a nondenominational partnership of local churches aimed
at addressing the needs of the community, has organized more than
2,500 volunteers from 16 local congregations to complete more than
300 service projects.
Project materials come at a cost, and to defray project expenses,
Together for Lincoln will have a drive-thru pork chop dinner at
Lincoln IGA on May 5 from 4 to 7 p.m. Dinners are $8 each and
walk-ups are welcome. Advance tickets can be purchased at Jefferson
Street Christian Church. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and 8
a.m. to 4 p.m.
Tuesday through Friday. All proceeds will be
used to support Together for Lincoln projects.
Every year on
Project Day, volunteers can be seen throughout the community, doing
everything from fixing lunches to building wheelchair ramps. They
are found visiting nursing home residents, washing windows, and
trimming bushes at private homes, community organizations and public
Community members are encouraged to complete a project
application for consideration and are especially encouraged to
complete an application on the behalf of others with specific needs.
Applications can be downloaded from the Together for Lincoln website
http://www.togetherforlincoln.com/ and are available from
Jefferson Street Christian Church.

Local churches organize volunteers from their respective
congregations, but volunteers need not be affiliated with a
participating church in order to serve the community on Project Day.
Volunteer sign-up forms can be downloaded from the Together for
Lincoln website or picked up at Jefferson Street Christian Church.
Volunteers are matched to projects, based on information provided on
the volunteer form, and contacted by their crew leader in advance of
Project Day with project details and start time.
On Sept. 25, Together for Lincoln volunteers will be out in force
doing what they do best -- coming together for the common good.
