Former Pilger resident comes back to help clean up

By: Lauren Fabrizi

Jennifer Dorris used to live in Pilger, but has recently moved to Wisner. She had countless friends who lived there before the tornado hit.

"It's devastating, it's hard," Dorris said. "We came here starting a new life, and it's gone."

Dorris' son recently graduated from Pilger's middle school. She said it's heartbreaking seeing the extensive damage.

"My son doesn't want to come over here, he doesn't want to see that," she said. "That was his school. He started his life here."

Dorris has spent countless hours helping her friends clean up. She said she hopes the town rebuilds.

"We plan on staying the entire time, and when they rebuild, we'll come back and help."

Volunteers can register to clean up Friday at Wisner-Pilger High School.
