Omaha Morning Rotary Club selects a non-profit organization to support for a 3-year period. The organization is selected by the Club Members. The current recipient is Heart Heroes at Omaha Children's Hospital.
 
With the Hug a Hero program, for every $100 donated, a bear is given to a child previously identified with Congenital Heart Disease. The bear's cape is branded with the Omaha Morning Rotary Club logo.
 
Omaha Morning Rotary Club presented a "big check" for $20,000 to Heart Heroes representing their donation to the program.

This is the Spirit of Rotary – this is the Spirit of Community.

Thank you for your hospitality and generosity last night after the basketball games!  The Fairbury Rotary Club gave our basketball teams burgers and brats prior to leaving.  They were very appreciative!  Thanks for helping feed them!
