Once again, the caring hearts of the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro have proven that together we can make big things happen.
In July 2020, ten community-minded local banks partnered with the common goal of providing all metro families the supplies needed for a successful school year. These institutions, including ACCESSbank, American National Bank, Bank of Bennington, Core Bank, Dundee Bank, First National Bank of Omaha, Great Western Bank, Pinnacle Bank, Security National Bank, UMB Bank and Well Fargo, led the effort to collect school supplies for a dozen organizations with the Banking on School Supplies drive.
Over the course of two weeks, boxes of supplies were delivered to bank branches and NorthStar Foundation by generous donors.
You're invited to celebrate SHARE Omaha's birthday with us! We'd say no gifts, but... volunteer, donate (use donation code BIRTHDAY) or send a special item to one of 405 local nonprofits. Your generosity is the best gift!
Just 365 days ago, SHAREomaha.org went live. And these past 52 weeks, you've done GOOD!
Givers from across the metro discovered new nonprofits that serve important causes and connected in meaningful ways. You've served thousands of volunteer hours, attended important events, shared your funds and gifted items nonprofits need to do their work. Thank you for using SHAREomaha.org as a resource to find your fit and do good!
SHAREomaha.org has been live for six months! I was about to say “just” six months or “only” – both would be appropriate. “Just six months” meaning that for us on the team it has been an immersive experience so chock full of opportunities for the community that it feels like so much longer. The public and our nonprofit sector have both welcomed SHARE Omaha as a resource with enthusiasm, ideas and open arms. I have often called it the best whirlwind ever.
We have so much great news to share from our nonprofit partners about their amazing work. But, we'd love to hear from you. Let us know if you have stories you'd like to tell and we'll make you a guest blogger!!
