Connecting the Community…Project Hope Pack Collections

Every year my office, The Asthma and Allergy Center in Bellevue, chooses a different local charity to support through a holiday drive. In the past we have donated to the Siena-Francis House, Heartland Family Services, and the Wounded Warrior Project among others. This year, we chose to collect items for Project Hope Pack.

As a New Member of the Junior League of Omaha, I have spent my year learning all about the good the Junior League accomplishes for our community. While all of our projects are worthwhile, Project Hope Pack holds a special place in my heart. My first ever project shift was a PHP inventory shift; it was the first time I ever got to see the specific need the  League addresses in our area. It was also the first time I felt I had a grasp on what the organization was all about. Until that point, it had mostly been socials, a fair amount of wine, and learning the basics of the group. I only truly understood what a great difference the Junior League makes at that project shift. So, it was only natural that when my work’s annual holiday effort rolled around that I would think of PHP. I’m so honored to be a part of an organization that promotes philanthropy and promotes it so well. And I’m lucky that I have supportive coworkers who were willing to learn about the League, and chose Project Hope Pack as our holiday drive beneficiary.
