Inauguration Service Event

Service Event to Celebrate the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris

Thank you to everyone who donated items to our Douglas County community! A special thank you to those who helped to organize the event, collect items and distribute donations. Even though our donation drive has ended, the organizations below still continue to serve our community. In case you would like to drop them a donation the lists are still provided below.

Please join us at 6:00 p.m. on Jan. 20 to celebrate the new Biden-Harris presidency.  We’ll cheer to a future filled with hope, and we’ll report on the results of our Service Event.  Bring in this new era with fellow Democrats, and discover collectively what we gave to Douglas County folks in need.  REGISTER HERE
