The Friendship Home's largest fundraiser, Safe Quarters raised $111,635 on Sunday, which topped last year's effort.
The money will help meet the needs of the 1,600 victims Friendship Home will serve this year. Funds collected provide a safe, confidential home, crisis services and ongoing support for families who are rebuilding their lives because of domestic violence.
About 1,500 volunteers left envelopes on doors of people who weren't home. Mail contributions to P.O. Box 85358, Lincoln, NE 68501 or visit www.friendshiphome.org to donate online.
