BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) — Diane Bruce owns B&B Grill and Arcade in Bellevue, just one mile away from where a fire broke out at the Fontenelle Hills Apartments Christmas morning.

"I'm assuming some of the people are our customers so we wanted to make sure we could be there for them as much as we can," she said. After the fire, Bruce said the Bellevue community starting reaching out on social media offering to help. So she decided to be a drop off point for cash donations and other essentials," she said. "If they need us to do shopping we'll take care of that too but we want to just make sure that the community has a local place to go to get that to cause a lot of people want to help,

Bruce fell on hard times in November and said the community stepped up to help her so now it is her turn to give back to the community that gave so much. "The community stepped up and they were there for us so we just want to make sure we are there for them," said Bruce, "it's a great opportunity for everybody to do something for these families and to let the families know Bellevue is there supporting them."

Donations can be dropped off at B&B Grill and Arcade at 1020 Lincoln Road.
