PILGER, NE (KTIV/US92) - Residents of Pilger, Nebraska will get an update on tornado recovery Monday morning. 

A Pilger community meeting will be held at 8:00 Monday morning in the village park. City officials say they hope to have as many residents as possible to hear officials update residents on where the recovery efforts stand.

Meanwhile, Stanton County officials will be keeping the community of Pilger closed until 8:00 Monday night to allow for one more day of intense clean-up.

Anyone who has questions about volunteering or donating is asked to call a hotline that has been set-up. That number is (402) 833-1516. 

In terms of donations, a needs assessment shows that residents and volunteers need the following items: sunscreen, bug spray, anti-itch creams, tissues, paper towels, disposable razors, packing tape, sports drinks, and telescopic magnet tools. They don't need any more water or clothing donations.

Also, a big name is lending his time and talents to help clean up.  Rock Star Bret Michaels and his band plan to spend their day off Monday to help in the recovery efforts. Michaels has ties to Nebraska.  He says he has many friends and two sisters who live in the state.

The town of less than 400 people was devastated after a tornado tore through it on June 16.
