Donors urged to help the Red Cross maintain blood supply
Severe winter weather, flu disrupting blood donations

LINCOLN, Neb. (Feb. 5, 2018) — Winter storms and the flu don’t just mean a lot of people are missing work and school – it also means they can’t keep their American Red Cross blood donation appointments. The Red Cross is urging healthy donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve to help maintain the blood supply for patients in need.

In 2018, severe winter weather forced about 600 blood drives to cancel, resulting in more than 17,500 uncollected blood and platelet donations. And, widespread flu across the U.S. has resulted in lower turnout at blood drives.
Blood donations are needed in the coming days to help replenish the blood supply and ensure patients continue to receive lifesaving treatments. Donors can help even more patients when they invite a loved one, friend or co-worker to give with them.

Make an appointment to donate this winter by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor
App, visiting or calling 1-800- RED CROSS (1-800- 733-2767).

No Tobacco Challenge Artwork Winner Announced

 (Papillion, NE) – Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.), Metro Omaha Tobacco Action Coalition (MOTAC), and Nebraska Methodist Health Systems invited over 1,500 third grade classrooms to participate in the “No Tobacco Challenge”. The challenge is a proactive, fun, and simple gateway to engaging students in Cass, Douglas, & Sarpy Counties in discussing the dangers of tobacco, and the importance of making health-conscious choices for our bodies. As part of the challenge, students were able to submit artwork to be featured on local billboards. The Grand Prize Winner's art was selected from a pool of finalists, selected on the basis of creativity, neatness, originality, and effectiveness at promoting the message of living tobacco free.

The Grand Prize Winner of the Artwork Contest, Lily Bock, from Thomas Elementary in Gretna, was presented with a banner of her design by T.E.A.M. Sarpy Coordinator Autumn Sky Burns and Gretna City Councilwoman Angie Lauritsen.  Her artwork will be featured on two billboards, 84th & L in Omaha and Hwy 50 in Springfield.  Lily’s winning entry also won her a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card, with a $50 one for her class. 

All classrooms that participated were entered in a random drawing for a $200 Barnes and Noble Gift Certificate and a classroom pizza party, Druid Hill Elementary was this year’s lucky recipient.

To view all artwork entries, please visit

T.E.A.M. is a community coalition of more than forty local organizations that works to create healthy, tobacco-free areas for our community to enjoy.  They meet on the 4th Thursday of the month at 11:30pm at CHI Health Midlands (11111 S. 84th St, Papillion) in the Smith Suite.
