They could be seen standing on just about every corner downtown. An army of volunteers stood on every street corner and in several malls a few hours before the Husker game.
They were collecting money that will go a long way towards keeping the Matt Talbot Kitchen open all year round. Some of them, like high school junior Kaylee Friend, are volunteering for personal reasons.
"Some of my friends have just had parents who haven't had very stable jobs and so they've been kind of bouncing around from shelters to apartments to whatever. And so it's just a really neat thing that can help them out," says Friend.
Some volunteers, like Derek Aldridge, wanted to teach a lesson to his children.
"They're learning that they do have a lot to be thankful for, and others don't. And this is an opportunity to give back and show that they can help other people who don't have as much," says Aldridge.
The volunteers raised a total of $30,000 in three hours. The Matt Talbot Kitchen says in this economy, that's money well spent.
