A local grocery store and its shoppers worked to give back to the community Wednesday.

Representatives from the Family Fare on South 108th Street presented a $1,300 check to the Siena/Francis House homeless shelter.

The money was raised during a 12-day campaign where shoppers could donate $1, $5, or $10 as they paid for their groceries.

"The amount of money that they're giving us today is really the result of hundreds of people donating a dollar or two at a time so it shows the generosity of both family fare and the community in Omaha,” said Stormy Dean with Siena/Francis House.

The Siena/Francis House is Nebraska's largest shelter serving homeless men, women, and children – offering food, shelter, clothing, and recovery services.
