March 18, 2019 (Omaha, Neb.) – The Archdiocese of Omaha is holding a special collection at this weekend’s Masses to help offset the damage arising from severe flooding in northeast Nebraska.

Deacon Tim McNeil, spokesman for the archdiocese, said pastors were asked to conduct a needs assessment in their communities. Based on that evaluation, pastors can request funds from the archdiocese to aid in short- and long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts.

“Grants may be distributed to purchase water, food, shelter, cleaning supplies, tools, building materials, and tuition assistance for displaced employees,” McNeil said.

McNeil said archdiocesan funds will not be restricted to parishes and their immediate needs. He said pastors can request funds to help with community wide recovery programs.

 

 

 

LINCOLN, Neb. (March 18, 2019) – Nebraska Cattlemen is working to assist cattle producers impacted by natural disasters by launching a new disaster relief fund.

“Recent snow and flooding have wreaked havoc on Nebraska’s livestock industry, causing damage and losses for countless producers across the state.  We know the needs are great, and we hope this new fund will help Nebraska’s cattle producers who are suffering,” said Mike Drinnin, Nebraska Cattlemen President.
The Nebraska Cattlemen Disaster Relief Fund is organized in the State of Nebraska as a not-for-profit corporation and will be seeking to qualify as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization under which all donations made to the Fund would be tax deductible for the donor in accordance with applicable federal tax laws.
100% of all donations received will be distributed to Nebraska cattle producers affected by natural disasters, including recent wet weather events.
