Help Working Poor Families In Our Community - 1,000 Volunteers Wanted to Drop Off Items for Our Drive

Nebraskans for Solar and Heartland Hope Mission are partnering on the installation of a solar energy system on their building at 2021 U Street to help reduce their energy bills for the next 25 years, money they can use for their programs.

Nebraskans for Solar is raising funds for this new Green Watts for Good project through Giving Tuesday, a metro-wide fundraising campaign sponsored by SHARE Omaha. Our goal is to raise $10,000, and we will match individual donations up to a total of $10,000.

Giving Tuesday will be held on December 3, 2019 over 24 hours, but contributions can be made any time before then on our SHARE Omaha Page using the code GT402.

1,000 Volunteers Wanted: Our activity during Giving Tuesday’s 24 Hours of Impact is to co-host a drive for Heartland Hope Mission. We seek 1,000 volunteers to drop off one or more items during our drive.

Most Needed Items:
Clothing: gently used coats (all sizes) baby and kids clothing
Hygiene items: shampoo, body wash, baby diapers (size 3-5), toilet paper
Christmas: Brand new toys

When: Tuesday, December 3, 2019 from 2 pm to 6 pm

Where to drop off: Heartland Hope Mission, 2021 U Street. Refreshments provided.

Additional Option: We also will accept donation items at Nebraskans for Solar’s educational event at UNO’s Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center on November 20th at 7 pm. Please visit our website calendar for details.
