The #NebDemsCare items we are collecting at this meeting are non-perishable food, winter coats, hats, gloves and scarves to give to local food shelters and schools in partnership with Black Votes Matter and Douglas County Treasurer John Ewing. Please bring new coats rather than used coats. Thank you to Democratic leader Sandi Skorniak for her suggestions on local food pantries who are currently running out of food to serve Nebraskans.
