Local software design and engineering company Don’t Panic Labs is excited to announce the return of its annual towel drive for People’s City Mission.
From May 16th to May 27th, Don’t Panic Labs is encouraging all of Lincoln to donate towels in any condition for use at the Mission’s shelter in Lincoln. Towels are always in short supply, and the donations serve a vital need.

Additionally, monetary donations can be made to purchase new towels at https://give.classy.org/towelday2022.
Ameritas, Olsson, and Adams Elementary PTO are also coordinating towel collection efforts so their employees and students can easily participate.
“Towel Day has become one of our biggest events, and it’s inspiring to see more organizations join in to help the Mission,” said Doug Durham, CEO and co-founder of Don’t Panic Labs. “With all the new collection site partners, this year is shaping up to be our biggest yet.”
The towel drive idea came from the internationally recognized Towel Day, which is celebrated every May 25 in honor of late author Douglas Adams. The company’s name was inspired by Adams’ best-known novel, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, where the words “Don’t Panic” are printed on the Guide’s cover. “A towel,” according to the book, “is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.”
Don’t Panic Labs will share final donation counts in the week following the drive.
