Our community is full of amazing people who are going above and beyond in this time of chaos and uncertainty.
Our grocery store and pharmacy have been delivering groceries and prescriptions straight to people’s doorsteps. Our food pantry, teachers, and Chatterbox staff have been preparing and serving over 1,000 meals each week. Our local restaurants have altered their menus and made the switch to carry-out only meals. Our nursing home has done a phenomenal job of keeping residents healthy and safe. Several members of our community have had to adjust to working from home, while several others are still going into work every day, putting themselves and their families at risk. While these are great examples, we know there are hundreds of people in our community that are making a difference right now.
If you would like to recognize and say thank you to a certain hometown hero, check out the Burt County Plaindealer’s Hometown Hero campaign on their Facebook page. Hang in there, Tekamah! We are all in this together. We will get through this, and will come out stronger on the other side! #WeLoveTekamah
