The past two years haven’t been easy. Individuals, families and organizations have all been stretched thin in one way or another. But despite what we often see in movies, where characters become selfish and individualistic in the face of disruption and challenges, we know that’s not the case in our community.
Doing good is valued here.
In addition to the small acts of kindness we see each day, like neighbors checking in and looking out for one another, we also know that, together, we’re capable of incredible collective giving efforts. Last year, when SHARE Omaha asked our community to be a part of the first ever Do Good campaign, you answered our call: $2.5 million was raised through donations to nonprofits, including matching gifts. 1,874 items were donated for Wish List Wednesday. 1,247 people got involved on Volun-Thursday for a combined 2,885 hours.
