Fort Western Donates Christmas Gifts to the Center for People in Need
In the spirit of Christmas Fort Western Stores donated kids' boots and toys again this year to Uncle Ron's Country Christmas Toy Drive which benefits the Center for People in Need. Uncle Ron's asks that participants donate new, unwrapped gifts, cash or clothes for those who are having a tough time in today's economy, especially around the holidays. The Fort's donation consists of Western Christmas gifts ranging from new toys to new cowboy boots for kids of all ages. The Fort, continuing efforts to give back to the local community, has also donated generously to a local food bank to further help those in need during the holiday season.
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. In 2010 the center was able to provide nearly 8,000 gifts for low income children throughout the holiday. To learn more about the center and how you can help visit their website today.
