Omaha - Approximately 2,000 people in Omaha are homeless each night. To assist these homeless men, women and children, the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) School of Communication honor society, Lambda Pi Eta, and the UNO Ad Club will accept donations for their second annual Warm Winter Drive Monday, Nov. 29 through Thursday, Dec. 16.
Acceptable donations include coats, hats, gloves, mittens, earmuffs, scarves, socks and blankets.
Donation drop-off boxes are located in Arts and Science Hall, Room 140, and the Criss Library main entrance.
Donations will support the Open Door Mission's Lydia House, which provides emergency services for women and families in need of immediate assistance.
Lambda Pi Eta, Psi Rho chapter of UNO, won the Rookie Chapter of the Year Award for 2010.
