Norfolk, Nebraska based organization looking for volunteers

Posted:

Before the flood waters hit the Missouri river last summer they did massive damage in North Dakota, so much damage that it will take years to rebuild.  Now, a Norfolk Nebraska based organization is looking for volunteers who are willing to go to North Dakota and help with the recovery.  Officials with the humanitarian organization Orphan Grain Train say five mobile units are on the scene in Minot, North Dakota.  A town that saw over 4,000 homes made inhabitable due to flood waters.  A mobile disaster kitchen from Norfolk just recently arrived and 17 other mobile disaster units have been dispatched to aid in the recovery and clean up.  Officials with the Orphan Grain Train say they plan to have the units placed and ready for volunteers to begin arriving in late May.  If anyone is willing and interested in help with the recovery efforts, you're asked to contact the Norfolk Orphan Grain Train office at 402-371-7393 or find out more information via their website at www.ogt.org.
