A message from the Las Vegas Nebraskans Board of Directors
As a result of a rugged winter in the Midwest that logged record-setting snow depths then compounded with March rains, a major portion of Nebraska has been beset with destructive and overwhelming flooding that has affected over 100 communities, cities and towns and
approximately 75 of the 93 Nebraska counties. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who
have been devastated by this tragedy. Many/most of the LVN Club members, especially those
with Nebraska backgrounds, have family or friends affected, from one end of the state to the
The club has been approached by members, several non-members and entities who are looking to our organization for relief funding. If the devastation was somewhat isolated, it would be relatively easy to identify a specific cause. However, with the massive area involved, the question becomes ... Which of those areas should the financial support directed? Also, there are dozens & dozens of charities, churches and non-profit entities seeking donations. However, everyone has a favorite but a dislike or distrust of others.
The LVN would like to help but in the interest of fairness (to anyone of
the thousands involved) it is probably best for our members to send their
financial support to the community, city, town, organization, individual
or entity of their choice. We hope all the members and
supporters of our organization will do exactly that.
AS LVN BOARD MEMBERS, WE URGE EVERYONE TO SEND A DONATION TO A LOCATION OR AN ENTITY OF YOUR CHOICE TO HELP WITH THE FLOOD RELIEF IN NEBRASKA.
