YouthInspire donates winterwear

  • Updated

When YouthInspire discovered how quickly the Lincoln Public Schools clothing drive ran out of coats and warm clothes, the group decided to reach out to peers to get additional donations to support Lincoln’s youth.

YouthInspire partnered with the LPS high schools, hosted collection bins and advertised the clothing drive to parents, with the help of principals and student councils.

The Winter Clothing Drive collected hundreds of coats, scarves, mittens, hats and boots from families throughout Lincoln. Those items were donated to the People’s City Mission and Cedars and will help to support families and children in need this winter.

YouthInspire, established in 2000, is an entirely youth-run charitable foundation with this mission: “Youth serving youth through their time, talents, and treasures.” YouthInspire is led by an all-student board of directors from high schools throughout Lincoln.

The program is an extension of the youth programming offered through the Larry Arth Youth in Action Center at Leadership Lincoln. The goal of the Youth in Action Center is to develop our youth, give them a voice in the community and teach them at an early age they can make a difference.

For additional information about YouthInspire or youth programming within Leadership Lincoln, Inc. contact Leadership Lincoln at 402-441-4661 or youthinspire@leadershiplincoln.org.
