Metro flooding: How you're responding to those in need

Written by Katie Fourney    on March 29, 2019    in
It's devastating to see the impact of flood waters on our Iowa and Nebraska communities. The destruction to land and homes along with the number of families displaced is overwhelming. As the waters just start to recede, we know the full weight of this disaster is yet to be evident.

We at SHARE Omaha will continue to spread the word about how our local nonprofits are responding and how you can help. You can see an updated list of flood relief needs here

But our communities really are #IowaStrong and #NebraskaStrong. And SHARE Omaha followers have responded to the call.

SHARE Omaha goes live: A two month recap

Written by Katie Fourney    on March 21, 2019
Two short months ago the “coming soon” page disappeared and SHAREomaha.org went live. There in one centralized place were 150 local nonprofits who came together to share their needs, 193 volunteer postings and 840 wish list items, with the community. Collectively, we held our breath. Would the Omaha metro see the need of our nonprofits and respond?

And you did. On day one donations came, volunteer applications were submitted and wish list items were purchased and sent to our local nonprofits. And they haven’t stopped coming.  Now on day 64, the metro is using SHAREomaha.org as a tool for every day philanthropy. Thank you for embracing SHARE Omaha as a gateway to do good, 365 days a year.

The Greater Omaha Chamber's YP Summit challenges the way you think, provides you with new tools and inspires you to put them into action. One of the new tools available to the metro? SHAREomaha.org.

On March 15th at the the 2019 YP Summit, SHARE Omaha will engage with Summit attendees in the pre-function space. Attendees will use SHAREomaha.org to initiate positive, community-enhancing change. Attendees who pledge to participate in a SHARE Omaha volunteer opportunity during April’s (do)GOOD month will receive a free tee while supplies last.
