Continuing a Legacy of Love

The Reader would like to extend our thoughts and sympathies to the families of Ty and Terry Schenzel, founders of The Hope Center for Kids. The couple leaves behind a legacy of love and compassion for their community. If you would like to honor their memory, consider donating to The Hope Center, or attending the upcoming Lunch and Learn Friday, November 6th at noon. The event includes lunch, a tour of the North Omaha Facility, and a discussion about how your contributions aid the most helpless members of our community. Omaha is truly in debt to this amazing family and the work they have done.
