The mission of UNO’s Maverick Food Pantry is to contribute to UNO’s culture of caring by providing food to those in immediate need and connecting them with resources in the greater Omaha area for long-term support.

About Omaha Gives!
Omaha Gives! is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Omaha Community Foundation to grow philanthropy in the metro area (Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie counties). The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. Matching funds and prize money will be made available to amplify charitable donations. Omaha Gives! is based on other successful giving days hosted by community foundations across the country.
Leading the way for Omaha Gives!, the Omaha Community Foundation has been helping individuals, families, and organizations facilitate their charitable giving since 1982. Over the years, those donors have given more than $906 million to more than 3,000 charitable organizations, including educational institutions, human service groups, and agencies that help with arts, culture and humanities among others.
How Can You Help
Omaha Gives! begins on Wednesday, May 21, and lasts for 24 hours. You can donate online, and the minimum donation is $10.
