Junior’s House gets community support

Posted on Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 4:32 pm

Junior’s House board and staff members have expressed their appreciation to CATO, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and Leadership Lincoln for their tremendous efforts helping children in the 17th Judicial District.

According to Heather Warden, Junior’s House executive director, CATO held a donation drive to benefit the Child Advocacy Center who, in turn, helps children across the district.

Connie, Selena, Megan and Adria, the management and team members at CATO, collected items such as snacks, drinks, school supplies, paper products, kitchen items, bath items and cleaning supplies. CATO also donated $100 to the center.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints held a snack and drink drive for the children who visit the Advocacy Center. Every child who visits the Center receives a healthy snack, drink, stuffed animal and book.

“The church members donated wonderful snacks like peanut butter crackers, fruit chews, raisins, granola bars and single serve drinks like bottled water, fruit juice and Capri Sun,” Warden said.

The Leadership Lincoln Class of 2011-2012 decided to complete a project for the Advocacy Center. They spent their weekends fixing the columns on the front porch, painting the columns, painting the outdoor furniture and cleaning up around the outside of the building.

“Junior’s House has a beautiful entrance to welcome children who need help due to having suffered from abuse or neglect,” Warden said.

If your business or group would like to do a project or drive for Junior’s House, please contact Warden at 438-3233.
