Donate Money

The pandemic caused an alarming increase in need in our community. And while the number of families visiting the Center for food and diapers each month is down from the peak reached in 2020, the number of families seeking assistance is rising again. Rising prices and inflation are wreaking havoc on family budgets—a dollar doesn't go as far now as it did a few months ago. And families once secure in their finances are suddenly finding themselves in need of assistance.

Your monetary donation to the Center will help us feed families, diaper children and educate those seeking to better their employment and income.

Donate online by clicking below. If you'd prefer to make an offline donation, you can mail a check to: Center for People in Need, 3901 N. 27th Street #1, Lincoln, NE 68521.
