An update from Goodwill Industries of Southeast Nebraska:
In total, over 18,000 pounds were collected between May 26 and July 6 from six different Lincoln Neighborhood Associations and Organizations. Their hard work and generous contributions led to some pretty awesome community improvement projects being completed. This year’s winners were Arnold Heights Neighborhood Advisory Committee, Eastridge Neighborhood Association and 40th and ‘A’ Neighborhood Association.
Eastridge Neighborhood Association plans to strengthen their community with the prize money which includes a new walking path and updated playground equipment at Eastridge Elementary School.
Thank you to neighborhood residents who donated items and to the neighborhood organizers who made each neighborhood pick up possible!
