A Recap of April's (do)GOOD month

Wow, Omaha metro! You sure know how to do good.

Each year, National Volunteer Week falls in April. But we know the needs of the metro are too overwhelming to contain in one week. So, SHARE Omaha declared April (do)GOOD month in the Omaha metro. And wow, you really embraced this month of volunteerism!

Individuals raised their hands to help Omaha Rapid Response and Food Bank for the Heartland with flood relief. To walk animals at Midlands Humane Society, drive for Meals on Wheels and join the Dreamweaver Foundation Dream Team.

Fiona: A different kind of education

Written by Fiona    on April 8, 2019    in

Fiona is a soon-to-be English Teaching Assistant at the University of Nebraska-Omaha who is dependent on art to keep her alive. When she’s not writing creative nonfiction about gender, astrology or how to make the human experience better, she’s trying to find her new favorite horror movie.

As a college intern for SHARE Omaha, we asked her to write a little bit about why she is moved to give back to the community. Pledge to volunteer alongside her and hundreds more here.
