Coming fast on the heels of the holidays is cold weather. As winter begins to bite through our coats, we all want to retreat inside our homes to bask in the warmth of fires, feasts and families.
But it’s essential that we not lose sight of those on the edges of our communities, people and families whose lives can be changed by a single, kind gesture.
This holiday season, Nebraska Home Appliance, “Your Hometown Hero,” is joining forces with The Food Bank for the Heartland to ensure that the holiday spirit misses no one this season. When Nebraska Home Appliance services your appliances from now until the end of the year, they will also pick up financial or canned food donations for Omahans in need. Even if you don’t need your appliances serviced, you can drop off your donation at our office during normal business hours.
For those of you unfamiliar with their work, the Food Bank for the Heartland is an Omaha-based nonprofit whose mission is to eliminate hunger in all communities across Nebraska and Western Iowa. As the largest food bank in both states, Food Bank of the Heartland serves 93 counties, distributing food to 530 food pantries, schools, emergency shelters and other nonprofit partners.

We couldn’t be more honored to work with this amazing organization.
The Holidays are about encouraging selfless acts and giving, about celebrating and strengthening our communities. Let’s come together this season to ensure that everyone is made to feel a part of and uplifted by our community.
