After receiving dozens of inquiries about resources for flood victims and how area community members can support those in need during and after this natural disaster, we have compiled a list of resources, donation drop off sites and other information for the Central Nebraska area.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are aware of additional resources that can be added to this list. Needs will continue to be assessed and communicated throughout the next few weeks and this list will be updated accordingly.
