NCJW thanks you for all your contributions.
Membership Social and Annual Meeting
A great time was had by attendees at our annual meeting.
Thank you to outgoing board, and welcome to new board.
Thank you Patty for use of your lovely home.
THANK YOU to all our members and friends who donated winter clothing to our Keep Them Warm Drive. We had an amazing amount of gear. We sorted and packed gloves, mittens, scarves, hats, and over 20 new coats that will keep students warm this winter. On January 17, we took the clothing to three Omaha schools. Castelar Elementary, Jackson Elementary, and Liberty Elementary were all very excited to receive 3-4 large bags each. Special thanks to Patty Nogg and family. Instead of exchanging gifts, her holiday guests were encouraged to bring winter clothes for the schools. And they came through! Keep Them Warm was a great success!
This winter drive is on-going! If you would like to donate new and gently used winter gear for grades K-6th, please contact Jen Koom at 402-699-4602.
