Community pitches in to help victims of last month's storms


NEKOOSA (WAOW) -- Clean up efforts from last month's storms in South Wood County are still going strong.

To make the clean up easier for some, the Retirement Community of Nekoosa hosted a fundraiser.

For just a dollar, people could buy a sandwich.

All proceeds go to the Red Cross Badger Chapter located in Adams County.

"We wanted to do something to reach out and help. So, we thought what better way to have some food and some fellowship. All proceeds go to Red Cross," organizer Susan Berklund said.

Twenty minutes in, the group says it raised about $55 and sold about 70 sandwiches.

The event ran Friday from 11 am to 2 pm.
