The Custer County Foundation would like to thank Central Nebraska Community Action Partnership for working side by side with the Foundation to assist flood victims. The Foundation started collecting donations on March 15 and all funds were distributed by September 1.
Donations were received from twenty- two towns throughout Nebraska and twenty-three states, ranging from California to New York and Texas to Idaho. The flood relief efforts would not have been possible without all the generous donations from businesses and individuals.
Thank you for supporting the flood relief efforts, you truly made a difference for many individuals!
