Nebraskans United in Service
April 22-28, 2013
Governor Dave Heineman and First Lady Sally Ganem championed the ServeNebraska Week of Service inviting all Nebraskans to join them in volunteering.
The Governor held a press conference to launch the week and he and the First Lady did their part, engaging in a reading activity with 4th graders at McPhee Elementary School in Lincoln.
Nebraskans are giving, caring people. In each year since the Volunteering in America report was launched, Nebraska has ranked among the Top 10 states in rate of volunteerism.
During the ServeNebraska Week of Service, activities took place throughout the state, including in these communities:
Offutt Air Force Base
