Community raises funds for unique afterschool program

NORFOLK, Neb. - An afterschool program in northeast Nebraska is hosting its biggest event of the year.

The Zone in Norfolk put on Rock the Block at Johnson Park on Saturday.

Executive director Greg Priebe says the program is unique.

"We're an afterschool program that we don't charge any fees, so we have to have community help...really come behind us and see the need for what we're doing here," said Priebe.

Priebe says they've raised $22,000 through community sponsors.

The Zone works with over 200 kids, focusing on afterschool care and a mentoring program.
