Spring Fever Relief!

Getting a little spring fever? Itching to go explore Omaha? I am here to tell you about the gems of Omaha, the non-profit organizations. Whether you want a cup of coffee, some new furniture, or a good workout, Omaha has the non-profits for you. Non-profits are organizations that do not use their profits to pay dividends and investors; instead they use profits to improve their services, which make them neat places to support. Here are some non-profits you should think of supporting when out and about in Omaha.

If you are in need of a good cup of coffee, Urban Abbey is the place to go. Urban Abbey is a coffee shop on 10th and Jackson in the Old Market. This quaint coffee shop acts as a faith-based bookstore as well. It is a great place to study, read, and have a cup of coffee.

If you are in need of refuge from all the tests and activities in the spring, you can go spend some quality quiet time in the Joslyn Museum. The Joslyn is another non-profit in Omaha, that cherishes great art, and the best part about it is that Creighton students get in for free with their student ID.

Preparing to move out at the end of the year and need some furniture for your next place? Goodwill is a great place to buy furniture on a budget. If you don’t need any furniture from there, they also have great items for costume ideas, and you can find great clothes there for low prices as well. The nearest Goodwill is right after 72nd Street and Dodge.

In search for a good walk and a great indie movie? Take a walk down to Film Streams, which is a non-profit movie theater at 1340 Mike Fahey St. Film Streams offers great movies, and on the first Monday of every month, students can see a movie for free.

If you like to get in touch with your third eye, then One Tree Yoga has the perfect class for you. Every Saturday at 3:30 pm, One Tree Yoga (located at 50th Street and Dodge) has a free hot yoga community class. They accept voluntary donations, which are given to local charities.

Lastly, if you are tired of working out in the KFC, and you want to get off campus for your spring workouts, take a trip to the YMCA. The YMCA is a non-profit organization that offers a variety of work out activities, like classes, a gym with usual workout equipment, and even a swimming pool. The YMCA offers a pass to Creighton students to use the facility for free a couple of times each week. So, if this warm weather is making you want to go for a swim, then check out the YMCA.

There are so many more great non-profits in Omaha, so check them out this spring!
