Annual Christmas drive shines in 2010

The ND Club of Omaha Christmas drive had one of the biggest turnouts in years. Total cash donations were approximately $3,500. We supported about 20 families with food baskets at Liberty Elementary School. Also, we ‘adopted’ about 30 family members and 8 other single Seniors through the Grandparents Support Program at the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging. In addition to the donations to Liberty Elementary and E.N.O.A., we purchased about $1,500 worth of cold weather clothing, blankets, and hats/gloves/scarves, etc. for the Salvation Army ‘Winter Night Watch’ program and dozens of toys for Christmas giving to needy families as a general donation.

Thank you to all who donated. This outpouring of support helps many families facing difficult circumstances and is a testament to the Spirit of Notre Dame.
