A couple of Delaware County farmers are gathering donations for farmers affected by the flooding in eastern Nebraska.
Jordan LeClere says he and his friend, Josh Wendling, wanted to do something to help after seeing photos and videos of the historic devastation that has left numerous farms destroyed.
The two men are collecting donations – from farm supplies such as hay and fencing to flood clean-up items like bleach and buckets.
They’ll be packing up their convoy and heading west to Fremont and Ithaca, Nebraska next Saturday, April 6th. And they’ll be taking donations up until then. The farm supplies can be dropped off at the Todd Show Cattle Farm west of Manchester until April 4th or 5th, and the flood clean-up items can be brought to Manchester United Methodist Church and Main Street Repair. Monetary donations can also be made by contacting LeClere at 608-6297 or Wendling at 608-3159. LeClere says the community’s support so far has been incredible, with eight thousand dollars already raised for their fellow farmers.
