Current Restoring Dignity Project

You never know how hot it is during the summer until you don’t have air conditioning. This past weekend, temperatures reached over 98 degrees with heat indices of 105 degrees! There are many refugee families who are in homes and apartments with NO air conditioning! Restoring Dignity is launching our first ever WINDOW AC UNIT Drive, in which we collect air conditioners and install them in the homes of families who cannot afford to purchase their own units. If you have a used window air conditioner that is in good, functioning condition, please consider donating it. If you are able to purchase a new AC unit or two, bring it to our storage unit.

To sign-up to donate an AC unit, click here.

Days that our storage unit will be open are:
Saturday, July 7th 10am-12pm
Saturday, July 14th 10am-12pm

We are also looking for volunteers (or even volunteer groups!) who would be willing to install window AC units throughout the month of July. If you are handy with tools or know how to install window AC units, please contact Restoring Dignity via email or phone: email@rdomaha.com —- 402-305-8139

  1. Is there anyway people could come pick up furniture? My parents are moving and are looking to get rid of a bunch of items. However, none of us have an SUV or truck that would fit the items.

  2. Benson Area Refugee Task FOrce is having their free Clothes CLoset at St Paul Methodist church Aug 24th 9-11 am. Come in the northeast door by their north parking lot and the family can get the clothes, shoes and school supplies they need. 5410 Corby St (south of NW Radial Hwy. )

    • This family had been in the refugee camp for 23 years! The mom fell and broke both wrists in Dec. 2009 and 1 month later her husband died of a stroke. I will try to get some teachers to help with this. Next BART Clothes Closet is Sat, Nov. 2, 9:00-10:30 am at St. Paul Methodist Church, 5410 Corby/ enter northeast door.

    • I will take those items off of the list! Thank you! I will see you from noon-2pm. Can you sign up on the sign up page, so I can include you in the group email?

      • I have a 26″ tv that they could have. Its a heavy one prob about 10 years old but it works great!

      • Hi Isaiah, is it a tube TV? If so, we had to stop accepting tube TVs because they were so difficult to transport, due to their weight.

  6. Hi, Hannah! It was great meeting you and sitting next to you at the SSCA conference! I’m getting a group of friends together for next weekend. So excited. I’ll be bringing pictures and decorations for the bedrooms.

  8. Hannah I do not see my previous reply on here about having a shower curtain and a ford ranger to help move large items. I see those items crossed out though. Is that crossed out for me or someone else?

    • Hi Angie, I do not see your comment on here either- I’m not sure what happened. Someone is bringing a truck to move items, and another person is bringing a shower curtain. If you already have the shower curtain, we can use it for the next family.

  9. Hannah,
    We will buy a bed spread/comforter for the 3 year old, women’s underwear and girl’s underwear. We will also get 4 pillows.

  10. I have a fairly new day bed with a trundle bed. Both have twin mattresses with new sheets. I can send a picture if you think it can be used for the family. I also have a mower and weed eater in very good condition that I am not using.

  11. Can I just bring it with me on Saturday? I also have an entertainment center about 2 feet tall by 5 feet long. It good condition.

    • Yes, you can absolutely bring the items on Saturday to the family’s house. I will be sending out their address tomorrow via email.

  12. Anyone able to pick up a load of big items from 108th & Military Area ? I have a day bed, trundle, entertainment center, mower, & trimmer. I can transport but would have to make numerous trips.
