LINCOLN, Neb.-- If you see a "Toss Box" popping up in your neighborhood, the People's City Mission is trying to reach out to you, to give back.
"So far the boxes we've been putting up have been filling up everyday in most sites," said People's City Mission Executive Director Tom Barber.
Weeks ago if you wanted to just donate to the People's City Mission you had to go to the 26th and "O" Street Homeless Prevention Center.
"We realize that sometimes that's hard to do and we know that there are other boxes out there, there's some problems with the city they're doing some things with them," said Barber.
Those problems is the city's involvement in a current lawsuit dealing with the Linc-Drop boxes. The city banned outdoor donation boxes to for-profit organizations and city leaders said not enough of those donations stayed in the city.
"People want to see their donation go to the need and not just a piece of it," said Barber.
Barber says all the donations in these toss boxes will stay right here.
"Literally 100-percent of the donation will stay here in Lincoln and that's very important," said Barber.
Barber thinks the variety in donation boxes will overall be beneficial to helping strike out poverty and homelessness in Lincoln.
"Obviously there some other boxes out there and I know the city is in a lawsuit with linc boxes with the boxes they have out there and we're really not going to get involved in that but this gives people a choice to give to a product here in Lincoln," said Barber.
In total there will be 25 of these toss boxes in Lincoln. Barber says he hopes after having these boxes around for a while they will actually fund the Homeless Prevention Center completely.
