Huskers Helping the Homeless

Huskers Helping the Homeless

We will be having our 27th annual Huskers Helping the Homeless event on September 30th when Nebraska takes on Michigan at Memorial Stadium. This event raises funds for our homeless prevention and outreach programs. Each year, hundreds of volunteers accept monetary donations at local stores as well as the downtown Lincoln area. Thanks to generous donors, enthusiastic volunteers, and supportive sponsors, more than $56,000 was raised to support agency operations last year.

This year, donations will be collected at Sam's Club (North and South locations), Walmart (any location), Super Saver (any location), and Russ's Market (any location), as well as downtown on Saturday, September 30th.
