Orphan Grain Train delivers storage containers

Orphan Grain Train delivers storage containers

On June 16, 2014, Pilger and northeast Nebraska were devastated by several tornadoes. After the tornadoes hit, families began to rummage through what was once their home to find whatever possessions they had left. Then what do they do with the possessions, where do they put them? Most of the tornado victims didn’t even have a car left. Orphan Grain Train immediately started delivering 40’ security storage containers at no charge for the tornado victims to use for their few salvaged possessions. The containers were placed in Pilger and surrounding communities devastated by the tornadoes. Pictured are some of the containers located in Pilger, NE.
