They've been fighting hunger and homelessness in Kearney since opening their doors last February, and now Crossroads Rescue Mission and Homeless Shelter is asking for your help to continue in that fight.
One national organization is helping anti–hunger agencies across the U.S. by matching donations made through the end of April.
The shelter could win up to $35,000 for food and other supplies through the Feinstein Challenge -- the most successful ongoing campaign to fight hunger ever.
Every dollar and food item donated to Crossroads between March 1 and April 30 will be matched by the Feinstein Foundation.
Crossroads officials say these donations are what keeps them going.
"It's helped us out tremendously," guest advocate Brock Blankenship said. "It keeps it so we don't have to spend money on food, we're able to spend money to further help and develop the lives and get these people on their feet and back into the community."
The agency with the most donations at the end of April wins the highest percentage of that million dollars, but Blankenship says even if they don't win the challenge, they're just happy with anything people can give.
"Getting the donations themselves through the community is going to be a win–win, because we're going to get food, money through the door, and then we're also going to be getting money on top of it," he said. "It's almost like a cake, we're getting the bottom layer and we're getting the icing on top with this Feinstein Challenge."
If you want to help out, you can drop your donations off at Crossroads, 1404 E. 39th St., or you can contact them at (308) 236-5688.
