StarTran is Stuffing the Bus for Friendship Home

StarTran, in cooperation with North Wal-Mart, South Wal-Mart, East Wal-Mart, Sam's and Three Eagles Communications radio stations - 1240AM KFOR, 106.3 KFRX, KX 96.9, 92.9 The Eagle, ESPN 1480, and 104.1 The Blaze, is sponsoring the "Stuff the Bus" promotion for Friendship Home. We are asking Lincolnites to "Stuff the Bus" by donating NEW items needed by women and children at Friendship Home. Friendship Home is a safe haven for battered women and their children.

StarTran buses will be parked in front of the North Wal-Mart and Sam's at 27th & Superior, at the South Wal-Mart at 87th & Highway 2, and the East Wal-Mart at 84th & Adams, from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 13, 2012; from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, 2012; and from 12:00 - 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 15, 2012.

Purchase raffle tickets at $1 each for a chance to win great prizes while helping many women and children. It will be lots of fun, and it's so easy; just purchase new items, such as, diapers, toilet paper, towels, sheets, pillows, kitchenware, pots & pans, toiletries, laundry and cleaning supplies, batteries, ethnic hair care products, laundry baskets, lamps, vacuum cleaners and other small appliances, put it in the Friendship Home barrels just outside the Wal-Mart & Sam's doors, or bring it to the StarTran buses. Cash donations are also accepted.

Your donations are greatly needed and appreciated, as many families come to Friendship Home with just the clothes on their back. Friendship Home provides not only safe, confidential shelter and support, but also supplies women and children with the necessities needed to start a new life free from violence.
