HOW CAN I HELP?
At the top of all our minds is the recent devastation caused by flooding and blizzard conditions across our great state. Many of our 4-H families and supporters have asked what they can do to help. Please consider the below information as you begin to contribute toward the recovery efforts.
- MONEY IS THE MOST USEFUL DONATION. Donations for relief efforts can be given through many relief organizations, local entities or through the Nebraska 4-H Foundation. A list of Community Foundations and Relief Organizations can be found here. Remember to use caution when donating through social media sites. One source to verify the legitimacy of an organization is Give.org from the Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance.
- VOLUNTEER FOR A RELIEF ORGANIZATION. Already established relief organizations, such as Red Cross and Salvation Army, are the best way to support as a volunteer. Contact local organizations to see where you can help. Check with your local Emergency Manager for volunteer assignments.
