Papillion Sanitation’s 2nd Annual Holiday Promise “Bicycles for Kids”

Papillion Sanitation is gearing up for their 2nd Annual “Holiday Promise,” community giving event. This annual event provides new bicycles and helmets to local children who reside in the Rising View community during the holiday season.

Rising View is a well-established community with an overall goal to accommodate and serve Offutt Air Force Base military members. Their goal is to provide residents with quality, affordable housing in a safe and comfortable community.

In 2001 Papillion Sanitation started “A Holiday Promise” in an effort to give to those in need who live in the community. This year children who have one or more parent’s deployed will  be on the receiving end of this year’s community giving. Employees have worked hard all year to raise money and provide support for this cause. The bicycles, loaded with Christmas cheer, will be delivered to the children and families in need on Christmas. Last year, Papillion was able to donate 60 bikes and helmets to children at Rising View! Papillion hopes that this small gesture brings a lot of joy to children and families who are separated from their loved ones as they serve during the holiday season.

“We surprised those children and their families…the emotions were high and it was just amazing to see the joy brought to not only the child, but the whole family,” said Cathy Fugel, Assistant Sales Administrator at Papillion Sanitation.

This year, Papillion Sanitation employees hope to make an even bigger impact – they have raised their goal from 60 children to raising enough money to purchase bikes for 100 children!

Rising View will select bike recipients based on a random drawing and based on the number of bikes provided. Winning families will be notified by December 21 that they have been selected. Those families will then have special visitor on Christmas Eve as the Papillion Sanitation Team and Rising View Management will join Santa as he delivers the bikes!

Papillion Sanitation encourages you to get in the Christmas spirit and help those families in need with your nomination and generous donation.  Papillion Sanitation is a leader in residential and recycling services.  We are a locally managed company that is staffed by several people who are proud to call Omaha and the surrounding towns’ home.
