Up for the challenge: Douglas County employees are collecting food through Nov. 22 for Heart Ministry, Together Inc. and Heartland Hope food pantries. The annual Courthouse Food Drive Challenge this year has gone regional. Not only will Nebraska counties be competing against each other, this year the gauntlet was thrown down to Kansas counties. The winner in each state and the winner between the states will be determined based on the number of donations per employee. Last year, in a competition involving only Nebraska offices, Douglas County employees contributed more than 42 percent of the statewide donations.

Students involved: Vatterott College, 11818 I St., will host its annual food drive to benefit Takin' It to the Streets from Tuesday through Dec. 12. Students and the community are asked to donate nonperishable and canned goods to help fill the shelter's pantry.
