Fort Western Donates Christmas Toys and Gifts to the Center for People in Need

December 12, 2010 Uncle Ron’s held it’s 10th Annual Country Christmas. For the event, Uncle Ron’s transformed their banquet room into a winter wonderland filled with over 20 lighted Christmas trees for collecting new, unwrapped toy donations. Fort Western Stores attended the event donating over $1,200 in Western Christmas gifts to help Lincoln families in need. The event collected around 3,800 unwrapped toys total with all proceeds going to the Center for People in Need.

The Center for People in Need, located on North 27th Street in Lincoln, NE, provides comprehensive services and opportunities to support low-income, high needs families and individuals as they strive to lift themselves out of poverty and achieve economic self-sufficiency. Last year, through generous donations, the center was able to provide around 10,000 low-income children a special gift during the holidays.
