Children’s Festival at Sunset Plaza

Every year, the Sunset Plaza hosts the Children’s Day Festival on the second Sunday in February, and that’s this Sunday, February 9! It’s from 1:00-4:00 in the afternoon. Now a tradition for more than 20 years, Read Aloud Norfolk continues to provide books to kids “For the Love of Reading,” appropriate because of it’s connection to Valentine’s Day.

Various organizations in Northeast Nebraska set up booths and activities for the kids where they can earn tickets, and then they use the tickets to buy books. In previous years, about 1,500 books have been given out!

Planning starts all the way back in September, so you know it’s a big event. The organizations aren’t charged, but they’re welcome to sponsor or donate books.

You can click here to read all about the event and check out pictures from previous years.

Follow-up: Warm Hearts & Warm Hands Project in Norfolk, Nebraska

Back in November Northeast Nebraska Imaging put out donation boxes in their office and other locations around the Norfolk area.  We would like to thank all of the practices and clinics who took part in our Warm Heart and Warm Hands Campaign; we would not have been able to accomplish this without them.  We also want to thank all of the patients that helped donate and spread the word. 

We are ecstatic that we were able to double our collection from last year.  In total we were able to collect 263 hats, mittens, coats, scarves and gloves plus an additional dollar amount raised to purchase more warm clothing.  All of the donations received were given to Bright Horizons which is a non-profit organization which helps domestic violence and sexual assault victims and their families. 

The locations with boxes were: Davis & Kassmeier Chiropractic;Alegent Creighton Health Plainview Clinic; Dr. David Johnson Osmond Clinic; Diabetes & Wellness Clinic; Urgent Care of Norfolk; Woodland Park Medical Clinic; Battle Creek Family Medicine; Pierce Family Medicine; Avera Medical Clinic Pierce; MyPainDoc; Foot & Ankle Doctors, PC; and of course,  Northeast Nebraska Imaging.

Again, thank you to everyone that donated.  Northeast Nebraska Imaging is proud to be a part of such a great cause and work with a great organization like Bright Horizons.  Many thanks to the other healthcare providers in Norfolk for their help!
