Our hearts are heavy as flood waters wreak havoc in Iowa and Nebraska. The destruction to land and homes along with the number of families displaced is overwhelming.
But our community is doing what we do best. We rally and we support one another.
Immediate disaster response and evacuation were first and foremost for our nonprofit partners. They sprang to action to protect our neighbors. But as the weeks go by and the waters recede, our community will need us all to act.
Below is a list of who is doing what and how you can help. Please check back often, and if you are a nonprofit member with a volunteer or donation need, email us at info@SHAREomaha.org so we can help you post needs here and to your profile.
It's devastating to see the impact of flood waters on our Iowa and Nebraska communities. The destruction to land and homes along with the number of families displaced is overwhelming. As the waters just start to recede, we know the full weight of this disaster is yet to be evident.
But our communities really are #IowaStrong and #NebraskaStrong. And SHARE Omaha followers have responded to the call.
