Reconstruction is happening!

On Saturday, August 17, we sent a team to Valley to being the reconstruction process.  They worked hard, but it was exciting to see the road to recovery after the devastating floods that hit Nebraska this past spring. 

Our cash donations are going to Verdigre, Nebraska

We just wanted everyone to know that we received over $3,000 in cash donations during our initial collection of cleaning supplies for the flood victims of Nebraska.  We had some members that made us aware of how hard Verdigre, Nebraska was hit, and it seems that communities farther away from Lincoln and Omaha aren’t seeing quite as much assistance as those close by.  The money we’re sending to Verdigre will be used at local businesses to repair infrastructure of the town.  100% of your donation will be used in this way.  Thank you for your continued support for those affected by the flood.

This link will take you to a photo album so you can see some of the damage done to Verdigre.  Large ice chunks and flooding damaged over 75% of the community.  Sand and debris have covered many fields, pastures and athletic facilities in the area.

We made another trip to King Lake

This time we had a smaller group, but their impact was still huge.  They did a great job of continuing to help sort debris left from the flood and to encourage the people of the King Lake and Valley area.
