In just 9 days the FWP staff was able to raise enough money to purchase approximately 2,622 diapers to donate to the Lydia House Diaper Drive! Amazing!
As we dropped off the diapers, we got to chat with The Big Party Morning Show 94.1. We loved having the opportunity to join in the fundraising effort to help out the Omaha community. The drive has raised over 900K diapers, and they believe when all the numbers are in, they’ll hit 1 million!
For more than 60 years, the Open Door Mission has been working to end poverty and homelessness in the Omaha area. The group opened their Lydia House for family shelter and provides emergency services for women and their families. They also offer life-changing programs to address the homelessness causes, such as abuse, addiction or the inability to obtain or keep employment.

Christ Child Society
Emily Codr, Retirement Plan Key Account Executive at Feltz WealthPLAN, has been volunteering with Christ Child Society of Omaha for over 10 years. In 2007, Emily co-founded the organizations newest guild making her a 3 rd generation guild member. Emily sat on the organization’s Board of Directors for 8 years and more recently transitioned into an Advisor role.
Christ Child Society of Omaha is a not-for- profit organization of Catholic heritage committed to the delivery of human services to youths, adults, and family through neighborhood community centers.
The organization strives to strengthen and preserve the quality of life in the neighborhoods in which it is a part. Its members go to Christ Child Centers to learn, grow, to interact, to share, and to laugh. The Society provides needed programs to the community to encourage all persons to pursue their goals, to live up to their fullest potential, and to realize their dreams.
More recently, Christ Child Society of Omaha has made their layette program their primary focus. Layettes serve as infant care packages for underprivileged mothers. These kits provide many essentials to help local mothers without resources provide for their infants. With the help of generous donations and many volunteers, Christ Child society distributed 1000 layettes this past year.
This Summer, Emily co-chaired Christ Child Society’s annual fundraiser, Summer Soiree. The evening was a great success bringing in over $75,000 for the organization’s layette program.
