NWU alumni are asked to grab a shovel and bucket and head to Omaha on Saturday, August 21 for the second annual Lend-A-Hand to Omaha event.
This event is a spin-off of Nebraska Wesleyan's annual Lend-A-Hand to Lincoln, a tradition for new students.
The Lend-A-Hand to Omaha event will kick off at 8:30 a.m. with breakfast at Wheatfields, located at 1224 South 103rd Street (One Pacific Place). At 9:30 a.m., volunteers will travel to their work sites. Volunteers can chose to volunteer at Open Door Mission, where they will prepare food and sort and stock inventory, or they can volunteer outdoors at Hillrise Elementary School in Elkhorn, where they will mulch trees as part of the Keep Omaha Beautiful program. Those choosing the outdoor option are asked to bring gardening gloves, a pitchfork or shovel, and a bucket.
This is a family-friendly event so please invite your children, friends and neighbors.
