Some Ways You Can Respond

Many of you reached out about responding tangibly to the needs in our community so we want to communicate how you can get involved. The following are opportunities to love, share, and move toward those around us in need:

1.  Donate food for pantry boxes
We will be collecting the following items to assemble and deliver pantry boxes to families with kids home from school who are food insecure or to those that are elderly and/or high risk:

Breakfast Items:
Individually packaged cereal, juice boxes, fruit cups, granola bars, pop tarts, individually packed muffins, individually packed pancakes, microwave oatmeal cups

Lunch Items:
Microwave Mac n cheese, microwave potatoes, ramen noodles, cans of soup, individually packages chips, fruit snacks, individually packed cookies, individual packaged trail mix, jelly, peanut butter, canned vegetables, canned tuna, bottled water

Dinner Items:
Canned Soups, Stews and Chili, Pasta & Sauce, Canned Meat, Canned Vegetables, Rice, Canned Beans, Boxed Potatoes, Boxed Shelf-stable Dinners, Crackers

No sign up is required to donate food. You can deliver these items to either the West location or Midtown location, Monday - Friday 9 AM - 5 PM.

2.  Pack and deliver pantry boxes
Once we have assembled food items we will allow small groups to come back and deliver those boxes to those in need. Timing is TBD so we will be sending more info to those who sign up.

3.  House College Students
It may become necessary for UNO and Creighton college students to move out of dorms and some of those students may not be able to travel home. If you would be able to temporarily host a college student in your home you can sign up for that as well.
