Mid Nebraska Community Foundation is sponsoring their second annual North Platte Day of Giving, a 24 hour fundraising event on Wednesday, May 3, 2017.  Please consider this the perfect opportunity to support our mission here at The Connection:  To provide the basic needs of the homeless and help each move one step closer to home. In 2016 we served 264 adults and 50 children. We help people who are not homeless with an open dining room for area residents to dine with us if they would not otherwise eat because there are difficulties making their dollars meet all their needs, we help with vouchers for our Thrift Store and we   operate a weekend food pantry when the others are closed.

Donations can be made on our website anytime  or by going to: www.NorthPlatteGivingDay.org.

Another way to Give: if you are associated with Thrivent Financial you can use your Choice Dollars to donate to The Connection, we are on their list of non-profits and the process is easy breezy.

Please share with all your friends to make this a meaningful time to help those most in need. 

North Platte Has Talent was such a success last year we just have to do another talent show! The participants loved the opportunity to perform, their family and friends enjoyed turning out to be part of the crowd participation aspect of judging and our loyal followers had an entertaining option to support us.  We had 3 former clients and one current client participate, singers, dancers and musicians. February 2018 will be the next show but we will be asking for prospective participant videos in October 2017.  It takes a lot of planning but it is worth it. We will keep you informed.
