Our Assistant Director, Chris Cady-Jones, helped coordinate some volunteer help to spruce up our landscaping at Holy Family. Let us know if you would like to help out with more planting or maintenance.
We could use a few more volunteers at our Pantry Garden. Let us know if you can help !
Thank you for the overwhelming response from our parishes and other groups who have done pantry food drives and collections! This is part of what St. Wenceslaus brought down.

We do have to ask that if you do a food drive, let us know so we can plan a good drop off day and time.

We would still love to find more parishes that have freezer storage space near the pantry at 21st & Leavenworth. Please contact us if you can help.

Volunteers are continuing to make 250-300 lunches per day. Half are given out at our door and half are driven to locations along the 24th street corridor from north Omaha to south Omaha.

We may need a few more volunteers to help with set up.

We are still looking for someone to make masks that we could hand out to our most vulnerable neighbors.
