[April 21, 2016]
- The St. John United Church of Christ Outreach program is working
with ReNew Thrift and Consignments as well as Logan Lanes in Lincoln
to bring two fundraisers to the community to assist in purchasing
Narcan kits to be given to local first responders.
ReNew Thrift and Consignment special sale items
At the ReNew Thrift and Consignment all the month of April and
recently extended to the end of May, items may be brought into the
store and designated that if they sell, the store will donate 60
percent of the sale price to the Narcan Fundraiser.
Items donated for the fundraiser will specially marked on the tag,
so shoppers will see that their dollars spent will be invested in a
worthwhile local project.
Narcan is a Herion overdose reversal medication that can be
dispensed by local first responders such as members of the Police,
Sheriff, or fire departments. This drug is proven to save lives, and
is an important part of the battle against Heroin deaths in our
Logan Lanes Bowling Party
Logan Lanes Bowling Alley in Lincoln is also partnering with St.
John UCC for a special bowling event on Sunday May 15th.
This family friendly event will be open to the public, and bowlers
of all ages can come out and enjoy a good time between 8 p.m. and 10
p.m. Logan Lanes has pledged to give 50 percent of the proceeds to
the Narcan Fundraiser.

There will also be a 50/50 drawing and a Bake Sale that evening,
sponsored by the Outreach and Publicity Ministry of St. John UCC.
The proceeds from both of these fundrasiers will be given to the Logan County
Department of Health in Lincoln, who will in turn purchase the kits for
distribution to first responders. The LCDPH has been searching for the best
price option for these kits and now have found a supplier that will sell the
kits for around $100 each. One kit includes two doses of the needed drug. First
responders may administer the first dose, then wait to see if it produces the
desired effect. If not the second dose may then be administered.
Anyone who would be interested in donating to these fundraisers, or would like
more information about either of the two events may contact Tonita Reifsteck at
732-9796 or call the church at 732-6957.
