Dodge Cares hosted their annual check presentation event where a record-breaking total of $85,000.00 was presented to 14 local, nonprofit organizations located throughout eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. The check presentation was hosted by Michelle Jenkins, President of Dodge Cares Board of Directors and Greg Kraemer, Vice President of Dodge Cares Board of Directors at NP Dodge Real Estate’s 148Dodge Sales Office.
Dodge Cares’s guiding principle is that continuous support of the community stems from the belief in people and nonprofit agencies that work to make Omaha and the surrounding areas an even better place to live, work and raise a family. The NP Dodge agent and employee contributions to Dodge Cares help to provide food, shelter and comfort to the homeless, displaced and abused individuals in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.
“We are so fortunate to have a group of agents and employees that prioritize giving back to the community and sharing their success with those less fortunate” said Michelle Jenkins. “We are also so grateful to be supported by the NP Dodge Company, who generously match every agent and employee donation up to $250.00.”
Dodge Cares firmly believes the very essence of real estate is home and community. The Dodge Cares historic $85,000.00 donation will assist the following nonprofit charitable organizations: Fremont Area Habitat for Humanity; Habitat for Humanity Omaha; Heart Ministry Center; Lydia House; Open Door Mission; Pottawattamie County Housing Trust Fund, Inc.; Project HouseWorks; Siena Francis House; Sleep in Heavenly Peace; Stephen Center; Together Inc.; Washington County Food Pantry; Wounded Warriors Family Support; Youth Emergency Services.
