The Sioux City school district is donating excess desks, tables and shelving units to help out some northeast Nebraska students whose middle school in Pilger was heavily damaged by a tornado.
The the items will be delivered on Monday to a makeshift middle school of three modular buildings on the grounds of an elementary school in Wisner, Nebraska. Wisner sits about 12 miles east-southeast of Pilger.
About two-thirds of Pilger was destroyed or heavily damaged by an EF4 tornado on June 16. The school was too damaged to save and was razed earlier this month.
Sioux City schools superintendent Paul Gausman says he began his teaching career in Pilger as a band director and had spent time in the Pilger school building.
