It’s time to kick off our 9th Annual Christmas Giving efforts. THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE GENEROUS DONORS and your continued support for this program year after year; service to our local Community is a key tenet in the Alumni Association and Club membership activities!
Quick recap of the 2011 Donations:
Total cash donations were approx. $5700 (63% higher than previous year!); additionally 9 ND Club members adopted local families (46 individuals) for holiday support. We supported 50 families with food baskets and gift cards at two schools in eastern Omaha. Our Alumni ‘adopted’ 25 families (62 children and parents) through Assumption Guadalupe Catholic School and the Grandparents support program at the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging (ENOA). We also purchased approx. $1500 worth of cold weather clothing, blankets, and hats/gloves/scarves, etc. for the Siena/Francis House homeless shelter and Assumption school donation center. General donations of toys, sheet sets, towels, bus passes, grocery gift cards and dozens of toys for Christmas given to needy families through the ENOA, Salvation Army, and Siena/Francis House.
