At Broadmoor we believe that a big part of Living Better is through giving back to our community and those less fortunate.
Our philanthropic spirit came alive in 2011 when Broadmoor became an Adopt-A-School Partner with Miller Park Elementary School. This partnership continues today, serving more than 200 underserved youth and families annually by providing the following goods and services:
- Backpacks filled with school supplies.
- Turkey dinner baskets for families at Thanksgiving.
- Winter coats, hats, gloves, boots and socks for kids.
- Grocery sacks of food for students over the holiday break.
- A pizza party for students who have achieved scholastic success.
- Movie days and snacks for all students participating in summer school.
- Volunteering at the annual Track and Field Day.
We also maintain a meaningful partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of the Midlands, providing annual support to the Clubs for operations, programs, activities and staff housing.
We formed Broadmoor Cares, urging everyone in our Broadmoor family to donate time, talents, goods and funding. Some of the agencies we serve include the CW Boxing Club in downtown Omaha, Food Bank of the Heartland, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Open Door Mission, Salvation Army, Goodfellows, TeamMates, MDA, Red Cross, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, JDRF, Children’s Hospital, Lincoln Zoo, Warmer Days and the Refugee Empowerment Center, along with several youth athletic teams throughout the area.
Miller Park Backpack Drives
Residents donated school supplies to fill more than 225 backpacks with notebooks, pencils, colored pencils, glue, folders and crayons to help get Miller Park Elementary students ready to go back to school.
We also stuffed 200 bags with groceries and delivered them to Miller Park for 100 students over winter break. The bags were filled with nutritious nonperishable goods such as peanut butter, soup and breakfast bars, plus 100 loaves of bread generously donated by Rotella’s.
We donated baskets for 50 families loaded with everything needed for their Thanksgiving dinner, thanks to generous donations of groceries from Broadmoor employees, residents and packages of rolls from Rotella’s Bread.
