LINCOLN — Nebraska farmers delivered more than 4,600 bushels of grain that sold for $31,000 in the first two days of a grain donation program to support Red Cross efforts to help Japanese earthquake and tsunami victims.

“We’ve seen an incredible response to the grain donation program. It’s the largest program we’ve ever had in our chapter, and dollars generated will go directly to the Red Cross international relief effort,” said Renae Foster, chief operating officer of the Central Plains Regional Chapter of the American Red Cross. “The need in Japan is staggering, and the Red Cross will continue to provide assistance in terms of food, medical care, emotional support and general supplies in response to what may be the largest natural disaster in history.”
