Scruff for Schools is a program created by Five Nines that uses scruffy faces to raise food, funds and awareness to fight childhood hunger in Nebraska.

Putting a fun spin on “No-Shave November”, Five Nines and their Nebraska fundraising partners collect food and donations during the month of November to benefit the Heartland Food Bank Pantry Packs program in Omaha & Kearney, and the Emergency Pantry in Lincoln

Raise funds

Did you know for every dollar raised, the Food Bank can provide 3 meals? At Five Nines, our teams compete to raise funds throughout November to fight childhood hunger. Donate monetarily to the Food Bank of Lincoln and to the Food Bank for the Heartland. Be sure to sponsor and include the name of your favorite Niner when checking out to help them take the lead!
