FFC Loves LPS

At First Free we’re always looking for ways to love and serve our city in relational and practical ways. This year COVID-19 has presented significant challenges for many in our Lincoln Public School system. Together, we have the opportunity to impact marginalized families, struggling kids, and overworked teachers and administrators alike this fall. Want to join us? Here’s how you can help.

Fence message

With so many teachers feeling discouraged, the FFC Loves Adams team constructed a Solo cup message to remind teachers how much they’re appreciated.

Cookie Love

Nothing says you care like a handwritten note and homemade chocolate chip cookies. The FFC Loves Prescott team organized such a kind gesture, and the teachers were so thankful.

FFC Loves Elliott

Sheets for families

When the Elliott Elementary principal shared that two families received new beds and needed sheets, the FFC Loves Elliott team purchased eight sets of sheets and met the need.

granola bars

Breakfast Stash

After a school counselor mentioned she frequently hands out granola bars to students who don’t have access to breakfast, an FFC Loves LPS team stepped up and promised to keep the stash full so no student has to go hungry.

Gift for Lux

Surprise Snacks

A generous gift of water, Propel packets, and popcorn snack bags were donated to accompany notes written by the Lux counselors to encourage teachers.

soccer balls

Soccer Gear

When a para saw first graders playing soccer with footballs, a fellow FFC team member sprang into action and purchased brand new soccer balls for the kids, putting huge smiles on their faces.

cookies for Goodrich

Treats for teachers

The FFC Loves Goodrich team worked hard on a sweet surprise and delivered festive treat bags with cookies and encouraging notes to the teachers.

Prescott cleanup

Cleanup Day

The Prescott team pulled in other groups for a big outdoor cleanup. They spread mulch, cleaned up leaves and brush, and hauled off all the debris. To top it off, they left a message for teachers in the fence!

kids and snacks

Love from Kids

Any age can get in on showing appreciation for others. These two brothers even made a sign with every teacher’s name to thank the Zeman staff.

Thanksgiving snacks

Thankful

Check out this super festive, Thanksgiving-themed treat spread given with love to the teachers at Eastridge.

Superhero Status

The FFC Loves Norris team reminded the teachers of their superhero status with bright-colored snack baskets complete with superhero figurines.
