Operation Others Food Packing 2020

OPERATION OTHERS

Since 1967, this student-led effort provides food assistance to families at Christmas and educates others about food insecurity in our community to encourage a preferential option for the poor. 

At it's inception as a Prep activity, O.O. gathered enough food to help 57 families (500 people). Now with the help of eight Catholic high school students, almost 1,200 local families (6,000 people) receive food boxes in December. These students from Creighton Prep, Marian, Duchesne, Mercy, Skutt, Gross, Roncalli, and Mount Michael participate in the important work that Catholic Social Teaching and the Gospel message encourage.

Each year we are grateful for the many generous supporters, businesses, parishes and Omaha Catholic Charities donate time and resources to support these efforts. 

A Prayer for Operation Others

Wonderful and merciful God, you gather us here to perform your will. 

Guide us in our decisions. 

Keep our hearts open and let us never forget - that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do for you.

Help us Lord to be compassionate; to serve selflessly, and to grow in our understanding for your will for us.

Lead us and guide us; to act more justly, love more deeply, and serve more freely as we try to live in your image today and all of the days that lie ahead. 

Amen

The Operation Others prayer was written by Kevin Purcell, a Prep grad, former core team member, longtime OO moderator, and father of core team members.
