Knights of Columbus Nebraska Jurisdiction
Natural Disaster Relief

The afternoon of June 16 was the beginning of some difficult days for Nebraskans in and around Pilger Nebraska. A large tornado destroyed up to 75% of the buildings in the town of about 350 people. The devastation to a small town is huge. We as Knights of Columbus need to help. Through the Nebraska State Council Disaster Relief Fund we intend to distribute gift cards to help families with basic necessities. Funds will be distributed according to the guidelines established for the Disaster Relief Fund and could include matching dollar for dollar grants of up to $300 per family.

The Knights of Columbus Nebraska Jurisdiction Natural Disaster Relief Committee has been formed. All printed (PDF) requests for relief should be sent to your diocesan director.
