SARPY COUNTY HELP LINE

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office along with Sarpy County Human Services has established a help line for the citizens of Sarpy County during the COVID-19 pandemic event. Starting today, people who are sick, elderly, or caretakers of this demographic in Sarpy County may call the Sarpy County Sheriff Helpline at 402-593-1593 for needs such as picking up prescriptions, groceries, or other necessities. A uniformed Sarpy County Sheriff's Deputy will pick up and deliver these items in a marked police cruiser. This helpline may also be utilized by the general public to make non-emergency police reports via telephone that do not require a police officer present in their home.

The following providers are participating in this program:

Walmart in Papillion
Target in Papillion (Groceries Only)
Bakers at 36th St & Twin Creek Dr
Bakers at 801 Galvin Rd (Pharmacy Only)

UTILITY ASSISTANCE FUNDRAISER GOES VIRTUAL FOR 2021,

WITH GREATER NEED

 The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted people across our communities both physically and financially. Combined, Omaha Public Power District and Metropolitan Utilities District have seen a 38% increase in the number of customers requesting assistance with their bills.

 The utilities are coming together, as they do every year, to raise money for energy assistance programs through the Heat the Streets Run & Walk for Warmth, which will take place March 6, 2021. This is the 14th year of the event. This year, it will be held virtually in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

 While utility assistance is a year-round need, this event is held during the cold winter months to bring attention to those who struggle to keep the lights on and heat their homes.

 “Keeping homes warm and safe has taken on an even higher priority within the last year,” said Tanya Cook, director, M.U.D. Board of Directors. “I'm proud to lend my support to this event."

 Cook is co-chairing this year’s event, alongside Janece Mollhoff, director, OPPD Board of Directors, and her husband, Wayne Mollhoff.

 “We are seeing a record number of first-time applicants. These are customers who have never needed to reach out for help before,” said Director Mollhoff. “It’s clear the pandemic has taken its toll. We need to support our communities through the recovery.”

 OPPD and M.U.D. encourage participants to complete the 5K run or one-mile walk on March 6 on their own – in neighborhoods, local trails, or even on a treadmill. Custom neck gaiters will be mailed to all registrants.

 Participants in the 5K may submit their results online. Awards will be mailed to the first-, second- and third-place male and female runners in each of the following age divisions:

  • 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+

 Register for the event or simply donate to the cause by visiting HeatTheStreetsOmaha.com.

Virtual 5K price:

  • $35 (Now through March 6)

Virtual one-mile walk price:

  • $25 (Now through March 6)

Children 12 and under receive free registration for the one-mile walk with a paid adult.
