    Agency: Center for People in Need

    3-27-20 COVID - 19 Update:

    Our building may be closed to visitors, but we're still distributing food and diapers to anyone in need. Drive-thru distributions will be held Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Tuesdays from 4 to 6 p.m. Bring your Center Card. Is your Center Card expired? Bring it anyway. Don't have a Center Card but still need help? Bring a Photo​ ​I.D. We will help you, whether you're a current client or not. #InThisTogether #LNKStrong 
     
    Important rules and reminders for our new drive-thru process: Do NOT arrive early. If you are parked in our parking lot before distribution, you will be asked to leave. Only one vehicle per household may go through distribution. If you do not have a vehicle, walk-ups will be processed at Door 2. Please STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE. Our building is closed to the public - please plan accordingly and use the restroom, etc. before attending distribution. Please bring as few people as possible to distribution. If you are ill or have potentially been exposed to COVID-19, please DO NOT ATTEND ANY DISTRIBUTION. The drive-thru process reduces contact, but does not eliminate it entirely. Please do not smoke in your vehicle while at distribution, as it exposes our check-in and loading staff to your second-hand smoke. 
     
    You may only attend one distribution per week for food. Diapers will continue to be distributed once each month. You must be 18 or older to receive food. 
     
    Please be courteous in this time of national emergency. If you do not truly need help, please do not go through distribution. 
     
    We will still have staff available to help over the phone, via email or online. If you have questions or need assistance, please call 402.476.4357, email info@cfpin.org or message us on 
    Facebook at facebook.com/centerforpeopleinn eed. Thank you for your continued support and patience through this difficult time.

    3-24-2020 - COVID-19 Update:

    COMING SOON: Drive-thru food distribution.

    Starting 3/19/20, we are closing our lobby to reduce the number of face-to-face interactions between clients and staff as much as possible. We do not take this decision lightly, but we feel it is an important step in preventing the spread of COVID-19 while we continue to distribute food and diapers. We will still have staff available to help over the phone, via email or online. If you have questions or need assistance, please call 402.476.4357, email info@cfpin.org or message us on Facebook at facebook.com/centerforpeopleinneed. Thank you for your
    continued support and patience through this difficult time.
