For the past 13 years, The “Color of HOPE” fund raiser has donated over $90,000 to the American Cancer Society of the Midlands. The money raised goes to several areas of need, all right here in Nebraska. Most recently, our donations helped fund the “HOPE lodge” that just opened last year in Omaha.

The ‘Color of Hope’ project has been a wonderful philanthropic learning opportunity for the Junior Class Officers, and even better that it has united schools in the metro area in the fight against cancer. Our theme this year is “Stronger”; We are stronger together, Hope is Stronger than fear, and through Courage and Strength we can overcome and find a cure.
