CEDARS hosts Thanksgiving meal for homeless teens in Lincoln

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – CEDARS, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to youth, held a Thanksgiving meal for homeless teens in Lincoln.

On Wednesday, staff prepared a meal for kids who may not get a traditional holiday dinner.

Jim Blue, President of CEDARS, said he loves seeing the staff and the kids enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.

“One of the greatest joys is being able to spend times like this on the beautiful holiday of Thanksgiving with the kids and the staff. Kids who have maybe not known much of a childhood and staff who gives so much throughout the year and it’s just a great blessing and joy for me to be part of this today,” said Blue.

The event went through the afternoon so more kids would have a chance to get a meal.
