During the holiday season, we have many opportunities to give back to our community and help others.
Here are some ways you can help.
The Salvation Army's Red Kettle campaign is underway. The goal this year is $3 million. You can also donate toys, volunteer as a bell ringer or give your time in many other ways. For more information visit givesalvationarmy.org
The Omaha Fire Department is collecting coats for the Salvation Army's Winter Warm-Up campaign. You can donate new or gently used coats, scarves, hats and gloves at any Omaha fire station.
The ConAgra Foods ice skating rink at 10th & Harney opens on December 13. Admission is $5, including skate rental. Children under five are free. The admission fees benefit the Food Bank for the Heartland. For the seventh year, the "Shine The Light on Hunger" campaign will highlight the issue of hunger in our community. The Food Bank estimates 20% of children in Nebraska and western Iowa are at risk for hunger. From now through December, you can donate nonperishable food and household items at locations throughout the city and at the ConAgra ice rink when it opens next month. For more information, visit www.shinethelightonhunger.org.
