Joplin Tornado Survivors Support Pilger

Posted: Updated:
PILGER, NE -  The displaced residents of Pilger, Nebraska are getting some more help from people who've been there before.

Residents of Joplin Missouri, who survived their own devastating tornado back in 2011, are reaching out to the people of Pilger who were pounded by E-F-4 tornadoes.

A group of Joplin residents have announced a "Joplin Loves Pilger" campaign to help victims of the June 16 tornados.

The campaign includes a Facebook page to offer encouragement and an account at Pinnacle Bank in Joplin with all proceeds going to the Pilger Community Development Fund.

Some Joplin residents are also making the trip up to Pilger to help with the clean-up and rebuilding.
