In response to the severe thunderstorms and tornadoes that destroyed roughly 75 percent of Pilgrim, NE, we’ve launched Operation: Tough Town, honoring Pilger’s motto, “The little town too tough to die.”

A reconnaissance team is currently identifying the immediate needs by working with local emergency management agencies and gathering intel on the ground. As Region 7 prepares to stand up a command team for a response, the scope of work will likely include debris removal, volunteer management, and damage assessments.
