After a devastating tornado, volunteers are working hard to provide disaster relief to those affected in Pilger and surrounding areas. According to first responders there, people are in need of water, gatorade, and non perishable food items. But they're asking for no clothing, as it's too difficult to sort. Money is also accepted, all of which will go directly to help victims. Money should be designated for "Disaster Relief" 

Donations can be dropped off at the Salvation Army headquarters 2625 Potter Street here in Lincoln.  

Channel 8 Eyewitness News' radio partners, KLIN and Froggy 98 are also helping relief efforts. They're collecting toiletries, diapers, blankets, storage totes, and tools to help clean debris like gloves and tarps. Those donations can be dropped off at 44th and O, where a truck will be loaded up.
