More help for tornado victims in Pilger will soon be on its way. Concerned citizens from throughout the heartland are collecting items to be donated to survivors of the deadly tornadoes that hit the small town.
Some of those items are being collected at Bath Planet of Omaha at 136th and C streets. Those items include everything from water to flashlights and batteries – anything to help with the immediate need.
These items will be channeled through a distribution chain to get where they’re needed.
Joe Simon said, “Our parent company is Midwest Exteriors. We've donated a lot of work in small communities like that. This is our chance to give back. People right now are kind of in a hard spot in a dark time. I think it’s our call to be a light in this dark time for a lot of people.”
Donations are also being collected at Larsen International Inc. at 2050 E 23 St. in Fremont; Truck Masters at 5040 Russell Circle in Lincoln and Dickinson Farms on Highway 34, four miles west of Seward.
