Hillcrest Health Services Holiday Food Drive

Monday, December 6 – Friday, December 17th

Did you know that one in nine people struggle with hunger? According to Feeding America, more than 230,000 people in Nebraska struggle with hunger – and more than 82,000 of them are children. One of the ways Hillcrest gives back to the communities we serve is by donating food to area food pantries during the holiday season. Last year, the Hillcrest team collected around 3,000 pounds of food and other items for local pantries. This year, we’re hoping to boost that number to 3,500 pounds, so we need your help!

From Monday, December 6th through Friday, December 17th, there will be boxes out at every Hillcrest service line location. Refer to the list below of most-needed items, and donate what you are able to support our efforts. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.
