Volunteers are needed to sort and repackage food, assemble packs of food for our backpack program and work special events in our community. One-time and repeat volunteers are both welcome.

Groups of 12-20 are scheduled Monday through Friday from 1 pm to 3:30 PM. No special skills necessary, but attire must include closed-toe shoes and a shirt with sleeves (no tank tops). It would be great if regular volunteers available to help with SNAP (food stamp) outreach are bilingual in Spanish. Special events could be any day of the week or weekend – follow us on Twitter or Facebook for upcoming events!

Restoring Dignity Omaha

Hannah Vlach-Wyble ~ (402) 305-8139 ~ RestoringDignity@live.com
www.howicanhelpnow.wordpress.com

Restoring Dignity is composed of people in the Omaha community who volunteer their time and resources to help impoverished refugee families. Over the course of a weekend, we go into individual family homes and clean, organize, and bring needed household items. New projects are listed every other month. We assist refugee families in two main areas: (1) teaching basic cleaning skills and providing them with cleaning supplies and (2) bringing these families basic household furniture such as dressers, beds, chairs, and tables. In addition, we also provide basic household items, such as toilet paper, towels, light bulbs, and bed sheets. Everyone can help in some capacity, and we need around 35-45 volunteers per family that we assist. Join us as we aim to restore dignity and hope to the lives of struggling refugee families here in the Omaha area.
