Omaha Gives! is an annual one-day online fundraising event happening on May 24, 2017. Since 2013, this community give-together has raised over $27 million and awareness for 789 local nonprofits; a unique celebration of the collective effort it takes to make this city great.
Why support City Sprouts
City Sprouts' Truck Farm is a mobile garden planted in the bed of a 1975 Chevy pickup truck that allows us to bring farming education to local schools, community events and other happenings around Omaha! Our traveling, tactile and edible farm teaches community members how fun farming and healthy food can be, engages them in thinking about where food comes from, and gets them excited about growing food themselves. It's an awesome educational experience for those who aren't able to visit our community garden.
Unfortunately, our '75 Chevy pickup is ready to retire from the road. Its body is rusting, transmission is failing and it doesn't have a working gear indicator. That's why we're trying to raise $15,000 to help get the Truck Farm back on the road!
You can contribute by giving to our Omaha Gives! campaign! You can either schedule a donation to City Sprouts or plan to donate on May 24. Your donation will help us educate more Omahans about urban farming, food production and fresh healthy foods! The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
