Food Bank Peanut Butter Drive
Thank you to the FWP team who generously donated jars of Peanut Butter to the Food Bank for the Heartland. A staple item in many pantries, it is among the most distributed item at the Food Bank. So far, the Food Bank has collected over 6,000 jars of Peanut Butter during this drive. https://bit.ly/2LbU6HI
Lydia House Diaper Drive
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.
