OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A new website is helping nonprofits in the Omaha and Council Bluffs area to connect generosity with need.
The Omaha World-Herald reports that the SHARE Omaha website launched Thursday. The site includes information about what local nonprofits need in terms of volunteers, money or items.
More than 200 nonprofits are listed on the site. The site features nonprofits in Douglas, Sarpy, Dodge, Saunders and Washington counties in Nebraska, and Pottawattamie, Mills and Harrison counties in Iowa.
SHARE Omaha Executive Director Marjorie Maas says the platform has an all-inclusive approach and lists organizations of various sizes and with various missions. She says the goal is to make it easier for local residents to find nonprofits that need help.
David Scott of the Suzanne & Walter Scott Foundation proposed the idea in Omaha after seeing a similar project in North Carolina.
