How to Help


Donate Today - $124 Feeds a Family of 4 for a Month!

Your generous gift will help us purchase food items for our pantry at greatly reduced costs through our network of providers, thereby making every food dollar go farther to serve as many families as possible.

Heartland Hope Mission serves the working poor by helping them bridge their financial gap with items of necessity: food, clothing and financial education.  In addition to direct monetary donations that allow us to purchase food at greatly reduced prices, here are several other ways in which you can support the efforts and help others in your community:

Please use the green donation door on the south side of the building. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ITEMS OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING.

Host a Drive 

Hosting a drive is a great way for your organization to serve the working poor in our community. Items donated during drives help us keep our shelves full of nutritious food, essential hygiene items, and appropriate clothing. A drive can be scheduled and held at any time.  Call 402.733.1904 x11 or email  for more information.

Holiday Giving 

Families that don’t earn enough throughout the year depend upon agencies like Heartland Hope Mission to brighten their holiday season. Last year, we provided over 5,000 people with a full Thanksgiving meal and over 1,100 children with brand new toys and food for Christmas. Your donation helps a family in need have a happy holiday season.

Omaha Gives!

Heartland Hope Mission participates in Omaha’s 24-hour charitable challenge. This citywide fundraiser is used to inspire the community to come together to support the work of nonprofits in the metro area. 

Make a donation to  Heartland Hope Mission and spread the word to all of your friends! Donations can be made from midnight to midnight on May 24th.

We ask that all hygiene item donations are unopened and in their original packaging.
