December 10 - NOISE Report


LISTEN UP, time for the NOISE Report brought to you by North Omaha Information Support Everyone.

I’m Ashley Salem. As winter temperatures drop below freezing, students of Franklin Elementary received coats from the Urban League of Nebraska Young Professionals. With the help of Operation Warm, a national effort to provide winter wear to children in need, Organizers outfitted over 250 kids with coats, free of charge. The Young professionals say they are planning even more service events for the community.

Heart Ministry Center at 2222 Binney Street - broke ground on a multi-million dollar addition for their food pantry and job placement programs. CEO Eric Crawford explained:

“Having our new building our priority would be to continue to provide quality services to our clients. When people come to utilize our services they’ll have a more spacious more comfortable place to do so.”

Scheduled to open in the fall of 2019, the new building will provide clients and community - an affordable place to do laundry, which can be a barrier to finding and keeping steady employment. I’m Luis Jimenez.
