Community Challenged To Give This Wednesday

It’s a 24 hour challenge to give to charity and it’s happening this Wednesday.

Organizers announced Monday at Memorial Park the plans for the first ever “Omaha Gives 24 Hour Challenge.” From 12am to 12pm on May 22nd people are asked to go online and give $10 dollars to any of the 300 nonprofit organizations in Omaha that are participating.

Sarah Boyd with the Omaha Community Foundation said, “Our goal is really to help demonstrate the power of coming together as a community to give. To show people that $10 dollars really does matter, because my $10 dollars, combined with my neighbors $10 dollars, and others helps move this community forward and really makes this community work.”

Organizers say another incentive to give that day; some organizations plan to match the amount given. For more information you can go to their website at
