March 23 – 25, 2022
You helped us provide more than 4,000 care kits to children in our community!
We would like to extend a special, “THANK YOU” to YOU for making our Shine Bright – Care Kits for Kids event a huge success! On March 23-25, the MidAmerica Center was filled with excitement, joy, smiles, great energy and a lot of heart.
Every child deserves to come to school feeling confident and ready to learn, but for so many this is not possible. Many local students across the metro are lacking essential hygiene items such as soap, shampoo, conditioner, clean clothes and dental products — impacting their health, learning and confidence.
Because of so many peoples’ efforts – 4,000 Kindergarten, sixth- and ninth-grade students across our metro area received the essential hygiene items needed to ensure they have the confidence to go to school every day, ready to learn.
Thank you for helping local students shine and improve their health, academics and confidence!
Learn more about the impact of Shine Bright from Dr. Cheryl Logan, Superintendent, Omaha Public Schools.
THANKS TO VOLUNTEERS LIKE YOU, WE CAN MAKE OUR COMMUNITY A BETTER PLACE
During the event, we had more than 375 community volunteers from 38 companies putting together boxes, setting out and organizing products, assembling and separating 4,000 kits based on grade, ethnicity, gender and school.
Thank you to the over 350 community members who put together care packages.
We hope you are filled with immense pride in knowing you’ve helped thousands of students SHINE BRIGHT and be set up for success!
