The North Omaha Community Care Council (NOCCC) will host its first Community Impact Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 15 at the Swanson Conference Center, on the Fort Omaha Campus Metro Community College, 5370 N. 30th St.

The luncheon will honor not-for-profit social service agencies, outstanding youth activism and commercial collaboration in service to the north Omaha community.

Former Creighton University and Central High School basketball star Josh Jones is the keynote speaker. The emcee will be FOX-42 video journalist Leah Uko.

The luncheon will honor awardees in three categories: Spirit of Business Award; Spirit of Advocacy Award; and Spirit of Youth Award. The luncheon also serves to celebrate and raise awareness of the quiet, effective service of the NOCCC to the north Omaha community.
