Voting open Aug. 12-26, 2022

The Center for People in Need is proud to announce that we've been selected as a finalist for The Big Give—a local philanthropic initiative presented by Union Bank & Trust! UBT has pledged to donate $100,000 to 10 Lincoln nonprofits, for a total giveaway of $1 million.

"We are ecstatic to be a finalist," said Macala Carter, the Center's executive director. "The $100,000 donation will go directly to a bulk-purchase of diapers and baby wipes for Lincoln's only Diaper Bank, ensuring thousands of young children in our community can stay clean, dry and healthy."

To win one of the 10 awards, the Center must be one of the top three finalists in the large category. Voters can submit one vote per category: small, medium and large. Beginning Aug. 12, visit cfpin.org/big-give to vote for the Center in the large category. Voters will also be required to verify their email address by inputting an emailed code on their ballot.

"Diaper banks and pantries remain one of the only safety nets available to parents when they're out of money and low on diapers," said Carter. "Please, vote for the Center in The Big Give, and help the children and families in our community who struggle with diaper need."
