Event Calendar

Each year, Heartland Hope Mission hosts several events to help support our mission to serve the working poor. 

October 2020

You may have been to an escape room, but have you ever had to escape hunger? We invite you to find the key that unlocks the door to hope by joining us online. Our neighbors in need are looking for a way out from many unfortunate circumstances. You’ll be given the clues to find keys in a variety of rooms, showcasing real-life situations that our clients face daily. If you crack the code and discover the key to escape hunger, you’ll be entered into the drawing to win a grand prize of 5 Walt Disney World Park Hopper Passes. Join us online on Thursday, October 1st at 7:00 pm. 

For questions on sponsorships, contact Renae by emailing or by calling 402.733.1904 x11. 

Stuff a Truck

During the 3rd week in October, we are hosting our Hy-Vee Stuff a Truck event. Volunteers are needed to serve a 2.5 hour shift between Thursday, October 15th thru Sunday, October 18th to help fight hunger in our community. Volunteers will give shoppers coming into the store an opportunity to purchase a $5 or $10 bag of food to help feed families in need this holiday season.

This is a family-friendly volunteer opportunity, as parents with kids of all ages are welcome to serve at this event to build awareness about food insecurity in their own neighborhoods. Food items donated and funds raised during this event will go towards providing Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families who rely on our pantry to make ends meet.

You can sign up to volunteer by clicking the button below.
