Live Better. Live BROADMOOR.
At Broadmoor we believe that a big part of Living Better is through giving back to our community and those less fortunate.
For over ten years, the Broadmoor Family has sponsored various drives throughout the Omaha, Lincoln, Des Moines and Sioux City communities. These drives have included Food Bank of the Heartland, Open Door Mission, Lydia House, Salvation Army, Sienna Francis House, Goodfellows, Children’s Respite Care Center, American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Midlands, to name a few.
In 2014, Broadmoor decided to take our giving to a new level. We became Adopt A School Partners with Miller Park Elementary School in Omaha. Miller Park Elementary has the lowest income level of any school in Omaha.The projects in which we partner with Miller Park include:
- Backpacks filled with school supplies
- Turkey dinner baskets for select families at Thanksgiving
- Winter coats, hats, gloves, boots and socks for kids
- Grocery sacks of food for children over the holiday break
- Funding a pizza party for students achieving scholastic success
- Providing a movie day and snacks for all students
We recently formed a new partnership with CW Boxing Club in downtown Omaha. The majority of the kids at the Club are from the low-income areas of Omaha. Since their funding is extremely limited Broadmoor has donated several used treadmills and other workout equipment. Our hope is to find even more ways to help the kids at the Boxing Club.
2018 Backpack Food Drive
200 bags were stuffed and delivered to Miller Park for 100 students to take home groceries for their winter break. Rotella's Bread kindly donated 100 loaves of bread. Other items included in the bags were: peanut butter, jelly, Easy Mac and Spaghettios, cans of soup, cereal, breakfast and granola bars, fruit cups and applesauce, juice boxes and sandwich crackers.
50 families received a basket with everything they would need for their Thanksgiving dinner. Groceries were donated by Broadmoor employees. A special thank you to Rotella's for donating packages of rolls.
Miller Park Back to School Drive
A huge thank you to our residents for all of their donations---over 225 backpacks were filled with notebooks, pencils, colored pencils, glue, folders and crayons. Another thank you to our helpers who helped stuff the bags!
