'We appreciate them': Briggs and Barrett Project hold annual event to thank community for support
NORFOLK, Neb. -- A northeast Nebraska nonprofit held a special event on Monday.
The Briggs and Barrett Project held their annual "Spirit of Giving" event at the Midtown Event Center.
The event lets the nonprofit thank their supporters in the community and give back to them.
Family members that have been assisted by the Briggs and Barrett Project spoke at the event.
Allison Uecker, a co-founder of the nonprofit, told News Channel Nebraska how important it is to have the community's support.
"I think it's important for the community to see firsthand what their support does and how it benefits other families," Uecker said. "If you give to your community, your community is going to give back to you so I think it's important for the community to know how much we appreciate them."
Uecker also said that the organization is working with Owlet to make sure that babies wear Owlet's Dream Sock.
The sock tracks heart rate, average oxygen level, movement, and wakings while babies sleep and will notify the mom and dad if there is a problem.
Monday night was the fifth annual "Spirit of Giving" event.
