Hurricane Ian relief through Super Saver Stuff the Bus

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — South Lincoln residents visiting the 56th Street and Highway 2 Super Saver on Saturday we’re greeted at the door by students looking to help Hurricane Ian victims.

The Skyview Learning Academy spent the day in the parking lot asking customers to consider donating basic sanitation products to those affected in Florida.

Multiple carts were set out for items such as paper towels, toilet paper and diapers.

Director Michele Ray said the call to action was simple.

“These people have lost everything; they don’t have anything in their homes,” Ray said. “You have to think of the kids. So we thought, ‘We are a school, so it makes sense for us to focus on the kids and the babies.’ ”

Serving is important to Ray, as her family received help during the Nebraska flooding a few years back.

“Back in 2019, when we had the historic flooding, my husband and I looked at each other one day, and we said, ‘We really need to do something to help,’ ” Ray said.

Ray’s family helped out by sending pallets of water to northeastern Nebraska.

While the items are different this time, the goal remains the same.

“So in natural disasters, food and water would be your primary things, but with us being so far away from Florida, we just thought this would be a good opportunity to work specifically with baby and child items,” she said.

The Stuff the Bus donation drive lasted till 6 p.m.. with many Husker fans taking the time to grab something for Floridians while on their game-day snack run.
