Hello and happy Friday!
We have our first Barrels for Life Drives coming up!!! If you are reading this and live in the area, come join us! We are so excited about this program and are ready to start filling those barrels up!
The drive will be on October 6th for St. Gianna Women's Homes in Lincoln, NE. They are always in great need of Diapers for the women that live there and their children. If you are interested in helping fill the barrels with diapers you can contact Katie Havlat at firstname.lastname@example.org. More info will be posted on our Facebook page as the event gets closer!
We will be doing a Barrels for Life Blanket Drive for the Siena/Francis House on Oct. 26- Nov. 2nd. The Siena/Francis House is the largest homeless shelter in Nebraska. At this time they average about 460 men, women, and children in their shelters every night. That number is only going to go up as the weather gets colder, and they try not to have to turn people away. They are in great need of blankets for their guest, currently not all guest get blankets, as they have been operating at times over 160% capacity. We are going to work together with some local parishes, organizations, family, and friends to fill as many barrels as possible with blankets to give to the Siena/Francis House. More information and details about this Drive will be posted on our Facebook page, and website as the time gets closer.
In other news, Live Greater Media is getting ready to roll! Our premiere TV show, ICONS: Real People, Real Presence, is shooting its promotional video this next week, and will start filming the 13 episode first season in the near future! ICONS will tell engaging stories of people from all walks of life who are accomplishing great things by boldly and passionately living their faith in inspirational ways. Like the ancient art form for which they are named, our “living icons” are windows through which we can clearly see the depth and breadth of God’s love. Hosted by the dynamic and engaging Brothers Angelus and Innocent Montgomery, CFR, ICONS will illustrate the many ways each of us can manifest God’s love in the modern world and inspire young adults to live their faith in today’s world.
A big THANK YOU to all who have contributed to the Live Greater Challenge! This organization could not be possible with out your help! We hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading!
