Thanks to everyone in the Prep community who helped set up, pack and deliver Operation Others food bags to 1,220 materially-poor families in our community during the 2018 Delivery Weekend (December 20-22). The food was distributed in 34 metro area ZIP codes, and each bag contained more than 20 food items and a handmade Christmas card. This was the 52nd consecutive annual delivery in the program's history.
Students from all eight Omaha Catholic high schools, alumni, parents, former Operation Others Core Team members, friends, and others helped during Delivery Weekend. Donations of time, money and other resources from additional people were critical to the event’s success as well.
"It was amazing to see so many volunteers giving freely to make Christmas a bit brighter for materially-poor families," said Operation Others program moderator Jerry Kinney.
