ClientUpdate: February 2020
The latest information and updates for Center clients.
Super Tuesday Distribution
We're adding household and personal care items to our Tuesday, February 25 food distribution! This super distribution will take place during normal food times - 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 6 p.m. Items like deodorant, over-the-counter medications, paper plates and cleaners may be available (but are not guaranteed to be). An up-to-date Center Card is required to participate. As with food distributions, we ask that you arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the start.
Tax Season is Here
The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program will be at the Center for People in Need again this year. Volunteers will help you complete your tax return before the April 15 deadline. Limited appointments are available at this location, so be sure to sign up early at vita.unl.edu/signup. A full schedule of all of this service's locations and for walk-in AARP tax preparation services at Lincoln City Libraries is available for download here: lincolnlibraries.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/VITAAARPsites2020.pdf or pick up a handout at the next CFPIN food distribution.
CFPIN is Getting Cooler
Thanks to the generosity of several donors, including the Wells Fargo Foundation, Nebraska Presbyterian Foundation and Cindy & Dana Rose with Culvers of Lincoln, we were able to install coolers in our warehouse to store refrigerated and frozen foods on-site between distributions!
