A-FAN Back to Help in Pilger

June 19, 2014Farmers and Ranchers, General Ag

There is NO place like Nebraska! What an amazing group of people we are surrounded by. The response from our email asking for help for the farmers and livestock producers around Pilger was wonderful! Thank you so very much to the volunteers that came on Thursday, you have made a huge difference in the lives of those you have helped! You are a true testament to the way Nebraskan’s treat their neighbors. There is still work to be done. Friday and Saturday A-FAN will be back in the Pilger area, helping more farmers and livestock producers. We are looking for more volunteers, especially with trailers and four-wheelers to help pick debris up. Also, coolers with ice are in high demand. As there is no electricity, this is the best way to cool off. Willow will be providing bottles of water.


The Wheat Board has generously decided to bring their baking trailer to Pilger and they are looking for two to three volunteers to help make cookies and cinnamon rolls to deliver to families along the storm’s path.


Please call Willow directly at (402) 710-1110 for information on where your help is needed. Also, there is now a sign up sheet in Wisner for those seeking help. If you are unsure of where to go, please stop by the Wisner high school and look for farmers who are looking for assistance clearing debris.


Thank you again to all the volunteers yesterday and to those planning to join us tomorrow and Saturday! You are what makes this a truly great place to live!
