Support Nebraska Tornado Victims through Catholic Charities

We’ve all heard about the devastating tornadoes which ripped through Nebraska on June 16th. According to official reports, two were killed, scores were hospitalized and the storm left “total devastation” in Pilger, a village of about 380 people.

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Omaha is providing a mechanism for all of us to reach out and show care for those who are facing such suffering in the wake of this tragedy:

On June 16, 2014, Stanton County was devastated by tornadoes. Catholic Charities is working with church pastors in Stanton County to address the emotional, mental and physical needs of victims in the Pilger and Wisner communities. You can  donate to help our neighbors in need by giving to the, Catholic Charities Disaster Relief Fund. Donations will be used where the need is greatest in Stanton County. 

The Archdiocese of Indianapolis’ Criterion has a great article about how families from the region have reached out to aid those in need, but more support will be needed on an ongoing basis.

Click here to donate and please join me in keeping the families of Stanton County in our prayers.

    Lisa, thank you so much for helping to spread the word! You’re the best. I had not seen the article in The Criterion — thanks so much for sharing that.
