A Warmer Day is a non-profit organization in Nebraska dedicated to assisting others. Their main mission is to distribute coats and winter apparel to underprivileged children and families. They collect the coats, have them cleaned and then distribute them to anyone who is in need and they are always seeking donations of coats or other winter apparel.

Although distributing coats and apparel is their main mission, A Warmer Day is committed to helping underprivileged children and families in any way possible. If you have a donation of clothing, toys, or toiletries that you would like to give, please let them know. If they feel it will help someone, they will find a way to distribute it. If you wish, you can also make a cash contribution and know that every penny will go toward the mission to help those in their time of need.

AFN / $15,400 / May 2016

Autism Family Network (AFN) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization located in Lincoln, Nebraska, which was founded in 2006 with a passion, love, and desire to help families who have children with autism. The founder of Autism Family Network worked as a Pediatric Behavior Nurse Specialist, assisting in the care of approximately 250 children on the autism spectrum. In this role, it became apparent that there were joys and struggles experienced by these families. Many parents seemed exhausted, isolated, and floundering for connection and answers to questions. The goal is to provide a safe place for families to share their smiles and stories and shed their tears with those who truly understand “to know they are not alone.” It is a place that they can find help amidst frustration and connect among others sharing similar life challenges and joys.
