At Royalty Roofing, customer service is what drives us. But we are also committed to serving our community. During the 2018 holiday season, our team created and participated in a 12 day long event where we highlighted and volunteered at various community organizations.
We encourage you to get involved too! In this blog, we’ll provide a quick recap of the organizations that we featured and let you know how you can get involved and help further their respective missions.
The Salvation Army.
Did you know that two hours of bell ringing at a Salvation Army red kettle raises about $60 in donations? The money goes straight to Salvation Army’s programs to help provide basic needs, housing, youth services, rehabilitation, counseling, and spiritual care to people in the Omaha metro area. Though you see a lot of the red kettles during the holiday season, the need doesn’t end there. The Salvation Army needs help year round. Learn how you can help.
The Food Bank for the Heartland.
Did you know 1 in 5 kids under 18 in Nebraska and Western Iowa are at risk for hunger? The Food Bank for the Heartland provides emergency and supplemental food to help eliminate hunger in our community. In order to keep their great programs going, they need your support! For more information on the various ways you can help, visit their website here.
Random Acts of Kindness.
We all get extremely busy in our lives and sometimes are on autopilot. But just a small gesture can make a big difference in someone’s day. Click here to learn more about how just a small random act of kindness can cause a domino effect that makes the world a better place.
Youth Emergency Services.
Each night, hundreds of youth in the Omaha metro are homeless. Many of these youth have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused, making it unsafe for them to return home. Youth Emergency Services (YES) provides the resources, support, and guidance that these young people need in order to turn their lives around. Learn more about them and how you can help support their mission.
Heartland Hope Mission.
Heartland Hope Mission strives to be more than a pantry by providing clients with resources to be food secure and self-sufficient in a hope-filled environment. It is a faith-based 501(c)3 charitable organization that provides basic necessities and services to help the working poor get back on their feet. Learn more about their mission and how you can get involved.
