The Tree of Lights Campaign: The Tradition of Giving

Christmas in Omaha is a time of generous giving. Even when the economy is uncertain or the weather just doesn’t agree with us, the Omaha community comes together to help those in need.

This year, the Omaha Salvation Army’s Tree of Lights Campaign under the leadership of Honorary Chairman Paul Hogan, founder of Home Instead Senior Care, Inc., raised funds for the 20 plus local services that the Omaha Salvation Army provides to help the less fortunate.

Hogan and his leadership team of Honorary Vice-Chairmen, Wayne Smith and Joleen David of SKAR Advertising, actively participated in getting the message of The Salvation Army out to the community. Hogan stated, "The Salvation Army’s Tree of Lights Campaign is among the very most important outreach programs in Omaha. The more than 20 vital services this campaign funds truly help identify the culture of this community as one of caring and support for all."

David expressed similar sentiments, "I am committed to The Salvation Army because they are committed to transforming lives in the community I love. Their selfless service inspires me to support them, not just by giving dollars but also by giving time - and by giving voice to their mission. I am proud to help The Salvation Army do the most good in any way I can, and to encourage others to join me."

Throughout the campaign, the leadership team and the Kettle Klub Cabinet never wavered in their belief that The Salvation Army is a good steward of the community’s generosity.

It is with gratitude that we applaud the 2013 Tree of Lights Honorary Chairman, Paul Hogan, and Honorary Vice-Chairmen, Wayne Smith and Joleen David, along with the Kettle Klub Cabinet.
