Friends of Nebraska Children is a group of dedicated volunteers who support the work of Nebraska Children and Families Foundation through volunteerism, fundraising and community awareness. Friends receive invitations to all Nebraska Children special events, a directory of Friends members, a subscription to the Spout quarterly newsletter and volunteer opportunities with Nebraska Children. Those choosing to serve on the Friends board will take an active role in the planning, coordination and execution of Friends events, awareness activities and service opportunities.
