LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- The People’s City Mission, a homeless shelter in Lincoln isn’t going to let the pandemic stop them from feeding the homeless this Thanksgiving.

Pastor Tom Barber, Executive Director for PCM says they are still planning on serving a Thanksgiving meal, but this one may look a little different than past years. The shelter intends on boxing up meals for the homeless who don’t already live at the shelter.

Around 350 people are currently living in the mission. Guests and volunteers are asked to wear masks and are subject to daily temperature checks. Volunteers are also not allowed to be over the age of 65 for safety concerns.

As of now, the People’s City Mission is the only homeless shelter in the state to have zero coronavirus outbreaks.

If you’re interested in helping out this year, you can donate here or sign-up online to volunteer.
