During November, our Schemmer Young Professionals (SYP) sponsored a volunteer event to help build a Christmas light display for Abide’s Lights of Hope campaign. Abide is a non-profit organization that serves the inner-city of Omaha. Their Lights of Hope campaign was “created in honor of the children and youth whose lives have been cut short by violence.” The entire Better Together Campus, located at 3223 N. 45th Street, will be adorned with lights, displays, carolers, entertainment and an opportunity to provide gifts/gift cards to those in need.
Schemmer helped design and build three life-size gingerbread houses (decorated by other volunteers) and an over-the-road archway that welcomes families as they enter the campus. The big reveal will be December 6th from 6-8 p.m. Please come see how hundreds of volunteers have transformed this neighborhood! The Lights will be on every night from 6-8 p.m. from December 6th through 25th.
A BIG THANK YOU to all of the volunteers: MJ Nachreiner, Jason Heinze, Mark Higgins, Matt Rasmussen and Rebecca Bouck, Ian Plummer, Josh Murphy, Paula and Walt Latham, Jeff Wageman, Tregan Albers, Kelly Hiskey and Jed Heatley, and of course, Jennifer Young and Broud Freeman with Abide.
