The Mission Outreach project for November is………

is the Panhandle Youth Shelter and Finders Keepers Foster Care.

The Panhandle Youth Shelter has served youth in the Panhandle of Nebraska since 1984. The shelter is a licensed facility with a 14-bed capacity.  They accept referrals from Health and Human Services, Probation, and the community. Youth experiencing homelessness or other struggles can access the shelter 24 hours a day/7 days a week. The Shelter can also provide crisis intervention for families who need placements for youth. The service for families is provided at no cost to them. 

This year the shelter is asking for cleaning & sanitizing supplies as well as gloves or hats for the cold weather.  Please place your donations in the outreach bin in Fellowship Hall.

Finders Keepers is a local non-profit group that provides essential items for children in the Foster Care system in Western Nebraska. Finders Keepers holds at least three “seasonal” giveaway events each year to make the donated items available to families that need them. Volunteers can also coordinate item deliveries on an as-needed basis.

Finders Keepers always has a need for packages of new socks and underwear for both girls and boys in various sizes.  These same items will also be collected in December for distribution to local schools so if you find a bargain, buy twice!   Again, place any donations in the outreach box and thanks for supporting our monthly mission projects.
