Devastating floods overwhelmed much of Nebraska in mid-March after a winter of deep snowfall and heavy spring rains. When the waters receded, 70 percent of counties in Nebraska were declared national disaster areas. While relief efforts have been in progress around Nebraska, the largest concentrated relief is happening in the Fremont area.
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Fremont, NE, established Project Restore with a grant from The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod to become a staging site for volunteer work groups offering assistance to individuals in Fremont and the surrounding communities. They have had groups from IL, MO, KS, AZ, and TX serve with them this summer, but there is still more work to be done.
If you have youth groups, small groups, or individuals who are interested in helping Nebraskans in need, Project Restore NEEDS YOU! Volunteers are still needed to help with clean-up and restoration work. Groups are especially needed for the months of September and October. **UPDATE 8/29/2019: Groups are now needed for November!**
Find out more about Project Restore on their website here. There, you will also find a sign-up form. Please share this website with your friends. Now is the time to be the hands and feet of Christ’s Church as we serve those in need!
