Forward is a ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church that seeks to help families in our community by supplementing consumable goods for their children. Families receive a monthly supplement of diapers and wipes for each child using diapers and/or pull-ups.

Forward is open every Monday except holidays from 10AM-2PM at the Trinity House, 733 S. 13th St., Lincoln, NE 68508.

Forward+ is an additional way families can receive support. Forward+ is a space where families can select new and gently used clothing of all sizes, households goods, toys, and books for their families. We are accepting donations of new and gently used items for Forward+.

Forward is a program of love and service to families in our community. Families do not need to provide any financial or medical records. New families can register by providing the name of the parent/guardian, names and birthdates of children who will be receiving diapers, and any contact information they would like to share. Families can also choose a “alternate pick-up person” who can pick-up the diapers should the parent(s)/guardian be unavailable that month.

Forward would not be able to serve our community the way it does without the amazing service of our volunteers! Our distributions are run almost primarily by volunteers who work in one to two hour shifts approximately two weeks a month. Volunteers also help by picking up diapers from the store, packaging diapers for our families, and organizing Forward+ donations. If you are interested in volunteering please contact the Trinity Church Office at 402-474-0606 or Bethany Mrosko at bmrosko@trinityoflincoln.org.

Forward is completely funded through the generous donations of our congregation and partner organizations. We are always accepting donations of diapers from any brand in sizes preemie through size 6 and pull-ups size 2T-3T through 4T-5T; any brand of wipes; and baby food, baby cereal, or formula. If you prefer to donate financially, we are happy to do the shopping for you! For Trinity members, monetary donations can be given through the Outreach Envelope by checking the “Forward” box on the envelope. Checks can be made out to “Trinity Lutheran Church” with “Forward” on the memo line. If you have any questions about donations, please contact the Trinity Church Office at 204-474-0606 or Bethany Mrosko at bmrosko@trinityoflincoln.org.

A special thanks to Lincoln Right to Life for their generous donations and support of Forward.
