Rocker Bret Michaels and his band announced plans to spend Monday, June 23 in Pilger helping with the clean-up.

Michaels, who also has ties to Nebraska, as both of his sisters reside in the state close to affected areas, is currently in the middle of a tour with 6 shows in a row this week and is making arrangements to forgo his day off on Monday to head to the disaster site to help out the good people of Pilger and surrounding areas.

"When I heard the news of what happened to the folks in Pilger, I immediately wanted to do something to give them a hand in the aftermath of this disaster. I have many friends and family in that area including my sisters, one of which served in the Air Force station at Offutt AFB in Omaha" said Michaels.
