Gifts distributed across Lincoln Diocese
OMAHA (SCR/SNR –Spirit Catholic Radio worked to “Warm Up Winter” for the less fortunate by collecting new boots, hats, gloves, mittens and socks for both adults and children in the Diocese of Lincoln.
Items donated to the campaign will be distributed in Hastings and Lincoln through Catholic Social Services of Southern Nebraska.
In addition to the Diocese of Lincoln, Spirit Catholic Radio held “Warm Up Winter” drives in Grand Island, Columbus and Norfolk. Items collected in each specific community will be distributed in that community. Collectively, 725 pairs of socks, 256 hats, 210 pairs of gloves, 28 scarves, 15 pairs of boots and 92 coats were donated.
Spirit Catholic Radio’s mission is to spread the Gospel message to all people and one way the network does this is to be Christ to others by reaching out to those in need.
“Spirit Catholic Radio’s goal in creating the ‘Warm Up Winter’ campaign was to help our neighbors,” said Jim Carroll, executive director of Spirit Catholic Radio. “The donated items will be distributed to people across our listening area who have a need for warm, winter items through our friends at Catholic Social Services of Southern Nebraska. We thank the generous listeners who helped make this campaign a success.”
Spirit Catholic Radio is the area’s only Catholic radio network with stations across most of Nebraska, western Iowa and other parts of the Midwest. Spirit Catholic Radio also streams online at spiritcatholicradio.com.
