Over the last few days, we have seen unimaginable flood damage in the Dannebrog and Wood River communities. The destruction caused by flooding will take a long time to heal and many hands to help with the healing process. We have also seen people coming together to serve others in amazing ways. Numerous people are reaching out and asking, “how can we help?” There are opportunities to volunteer for clean up and safe places to donate funds. Below are a few of the ways you can help.

If you are willing to provide a monetary donation, the Grand Island Community Foundation has set up the Central Nebraska Disaster Relief Fund. Contributions can be made online.

We are cooperating interactively with various other community foundations across the area, dovetailing our efforts in order to ensure that you have the opportunity to target your donations to the specific hard-hit communities of your choice.
