Cami's Bday wish: Feed Omaha Kids

For my 50th birthday, I want only one thing and that is to help feed our local kids. It truly bothers me that many kids come to school hungry and that school provided meals may be the only meals they get for the day.

So what do these kids do on the weekend for food? Luckily, Omaha has the Completely KIDS Weekend Food Program.

The Weekend Food Program is a unique idea that addresses a very real problem in our community – child hunger. Completely KIDS recognizes that kids cannot learn when their stomachs are aching and they are worried about when their next meal will come. This means weekends are especially tough for many of the children in their program.

Through the Weekend Food Program, on Fridays, children receive bags filled with healthy, child-friendly food so they will have food through the weekend. 

Many of the children who receive Weekend Food come from families whose incomes are 200% below the poverty level. Their parents are considered working poor, which creates circumstances that produce hunger and child care issues.

Please help me help these kids have full bellies so they can learn, grow and just be kids who don't have to worry about where their next meal is coming from. 

My goal is to raise $1000. I am working directly with Completely KIDS to make this a reality; but to do so, I need YOUR help! Just $10 funds one child’s backpack for one weekend; $520 sponsors one child for an entire year.  If we raise $1000, we together can help feed some kids who would truly appreciate your help.  

If you are not able to make a monetary donation, I would be most thrilled if you are able to make a food donation.  I am hosting a Rock and Roll Birthday Bash https://www.facebook.com/events/2297352257158063/ 
on May 26th at The Down Under Lounge (35th and Leavenworth)
8 pm-1 am.; feel free to swing by with these specific food items:

Please help me help our kids, thank you.

Best,
Cami
