Hindu Temple, Food Truck Association overwhelmed when contributing to flood donations

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Weeks after devastating flooding, people across Omaha continue to do all they can to help.

At places like Omaha's Hindu Temple, members partnered with the India Association of Nebraska to drive in donations for flood victims.

Cuisines from 40 different Indian cultures brought so many guests that this food drive was moved from the temple off 132nd and West Center to the community center across the street due to all the support of at least 200 volunteers and expected turnout.

Miles away outside Bellevue University, the Omaha Food Truck Association sold out food supporting the hungry and needy.

The association will do it all again in Fremont next week, and a division of the association will create a fund to support more relief efforts for future disasters.

The temple raised $47,000 and the food truck association raised over $7,000.
