OMAHA, Neb. – On October 11, 2018, Nebraska Children’s Home Society raised more than $15,000 through Homegrown, a volunteer-run event, held on its behalf.
The fundraiser, in its twelfth year, is organized each year by BRANCH, a volunteer board dedicated to supporting NCHS’s mission “to provide safe and loving care to children of all ages.”
This year’s event featured a photography exhibit donated by Chris Holtmeier of Foton-Foto honoring the families served by the organization. Bill Harvat, owner of Harvat Productions, produced and donated video testimonials of the same families to bring their stories to life.
Over 125 people gathered at Kros Strain Brewing to see the exhibit and donate to NCHS.
“For the last 125 years, NCHS has relied on the time and talents of volunteers to support our services to children and families across the state,” Chief Philanthropy Officer Brian Osborne said. “Because of that support, we’ve been able to offer adoption and family support services at no cost.”
