HitThatDive.com, Helping Others This Holiday Season
Written by Steve at HitThatDive.com
Regular readers of HitThatDive know that is one question I try to answer in every bar review. To some, $20 is little more than a round of drinks. And to others, a spare $20 is all that's leftover at the end of the week to provide things like food and clothes for their children.
On December 15 at 1:00 PM, and then again at 5:00 PM, we are throwing a good old fashioned, Office Christmas party, like you were always promised, at The Village Bar in Ralston. There will be food, drinks, music, fun, merriment, Bad Santa, prizes, free shirts, free stuff, friends, photocopiers, and most importantly...an opportunity to provide a real Christmas for local families in the Omaha area.
To quote The Kinks " Have yourself a Merry, Merry Christmas. Have yourself a good time. But remember the kids that have nothing, while you'r drinking down your wine." We have "adopted" two local families through The Salvation Army that we will provide gifts and food for in the days immediately following this event. Everything will be hand-delivered by the HitThatDive elves...so we KNOW it will be getting directly to the families.
Also, we've learned about a local mother that needs help getting a fresh start from an abusive household for her children, and needs simple items like beds for her kids to sleep in and other basic furniture. So, we've decided to get a substantial gift card to Nebraska Furniture Mart to ensure some of these items, that we all take for granted, can be purchased.
Because we want to raise as much money as possible, and also have an unforgettable Sunday Funday, we've decided to have two parties. The first one will be from 1:00-4:00 and the second will be from 5:00-8:00. Regardless of which one you attend, there will be the same amount of fun, and swag, at both of them.
