Honey Sunday is a long-standing tradition at Ollie Webb Center, Inc. It is a national fundraiser for Arc chapters around the United States and takes place on the first Sunday in November. On Honey Sunday, thousands of volunteers form teams and go door-to-door throughout Omaha selling bottles of honey for $6 for one bottle and $10 for two bottles. Proceeds benefit the programs serving individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. In addition to door-to-door sales, churches, parishes, and synagogues in the Omaha area sell honey before and after services. Also, local businesses have become involved in Honey Sunday by creating Honey Week, selling honey to employees and customers the week following Honey Sunday, making this a community-wide effort.
For more information on Honey Sunday or to volunteer to sell honey door-to-door, at your place of worship or at your place of business, please contact Ollie Webb Center, Inc. at 402-346-5220. Bottles of honey are also available at Ollie Webb Center Inc. for purchase.
