United Way of Western Nebraska has launched a relief fund, the COVID-19 Community Compassion Fund, to help individuals and organizations most need of assistance. Please click on the above graphic to donate. This fund was made possible by a very generous $10,000 lead grant from First National Bank of Omaha.
Please see the list of resources and links to help you navigate during this uncharted time. We do our best to keep the list updated. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for updates and additions. Stay safe and healthy!
