Donations sought to help Neligh C&R employees

In response to the news last week that employees of the Neligh Care and Rehabilitation Center did not receive paychecks and the center being placed in receivership, one local organization is stepping up to lend assistance.
Jessie Reestman announced Friday that the Elgin Koed Group is thinking about the staff and residents of Neligh Care and Rehabilitation during this difficult time.
She said the situation with the nursing home “affects everybody.”
The organization is giving to pay it forward and encouraging others to do the same.
“Please consider making a contribution to an employee you may know for their needs at this time,” she told The Elgin Review. “They can keep it or pay it forward to another employee who is in need of assistance.
“Together, we can make a big difference,” Reestman said. Contributions can be given to Reestman or to EKG treasurer Amy Selting to be dispersed where needed.
The Neligh Chamber of Commerce will host an employee benefit BBQ on Tuesday night, April 10, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to assist the 61 employees at the center. Accepting free will donations, all proceeds will go to the employees.
Also, an account has been set up at Pinnacle Bank in Neligh for donations.
