MILLS COUNTY, Iowa. (KMTV) — Mills County Emergency Management announced the creation of a flood fund with donations restricted to serving flood victims in the county.

Support will be going directly to flood victims, a press release from Mills County EMA says. This means the general community infrastructure will not be included.

Mills County Public Health is serving as the facilitator in distributing support to victims.

The Mills County Community Foundation will offer the following, according to the press release:

  • Tax-deductibility for donations
  • Process and issue gift receipts for donations made via check or credit card (no PayPal or Venmo)
  • Offer online donation through the Omaha Community Foundation website and select Southwest Iowa Funds and Mills County Flood Fund
  • Process grant distributions from the fund upon the recommendation of Sheri Bowen, representing Mills County Public Heath

Donations can also be made payable to the Mills County Community Foundation, 3555 Farnam St., Ste 222, Omaha, NE 68131.

Applications will also be made available at Mills County Public Health starting on March 25 and will be posted to the Mills County website.
