PILGER - The people of Pilger are shocked at the outpouring of support from around the state.

Donors have given about $400,000 to relief efforts.

People gathered money through various fundraisers including the Pizza for Pilger sales, kids setting up lemonade stands, students selling hair bows and donations to charitable organizations.

A relief committee in Pilger says $100,000 will be used for emergency assistance which will give $1,500 to each household for Tornado related expenses.
