Northwestern Mutual’s Nebraska office and Cheeriodicals brought cheer in the form of 170 big green boxes to children fighting childhood cancer and other diseases at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center during its “Cheeriodicals Day” event held on October 7, 2013. Cheeriodicals are “big green boxes of cheer” made up, in this case, of age-appropriate magazines, toys, puzzles, crafts and more goodies for the children to enjoy.  The boxes were tailored to boys or girls and specific age groups and are sure to bring joy to the children and even included a few surprises for the parents.  Contributing to this day of smiles, Omaha Two Men and a Truck, specializing in residential and commercial moves, donated their time and services to transport the 170 Cheeriodicals to Children’s.
