Our sincere thanks go out to the sponsors who provided grants to purchase new beds and mattresses for our shelters:
United Way of South Central Nebraska – Hastings shelter.
Hastings Community Foundation, Inc. – Hastings shelter
Arthur Klinkacek Community Enrichment Fund of the Kearney Area Community Foundation – Kearney shelter
Sunnyside – Hastings shelter
We are in the process of replacing our old worn out beds at each of our shelters, with new bed frames made of rugged metal to withstand rigorous use, and mattresses with an easy-to-clean waterproof, antibacterial surface. In 2020 alone, Crossroads Mission Avenue provided over 47,000 nights of stay to our needy neighbors in Kearney, Hastings and Grand Island! The new equipment will stand up to the extensive cleaning procedures required here at the shelter and should serve us for many years to come! Our old beds are worn out, and desperately need to be replaced at each location – let us know if you can help! Call Linda at 402-462-6460 if you can help!
