Supplies and volunteer support have poured into the Ainsworth area
from all across Nebraska and beyond. At the High School, volunteers have
gathered to cook meals and help in any way they can.
In the beginning when the fires were the strongest, volunteers were cooking 1,800 meals a day at eight different sights. Sometimes serving meals at all hours of the day. Residents say they are very thankful for the show
contributions, the donations, the hugs. The support we have gotten
throughtout a lot of Nebraska and outside areas," Kathy Worrell, an
Ainsworth Resident said.
If you'd like to help out, officials say sending money is the best way to do it. A spokesperson at the shelter says the North Central Development
Center in Ainsworth has more donations than what they need right now.
Yet, there are bills piling up for all fire departments. An example, one fire department's fuel bill is already $60,000.
