100.7 KGBI Hosts Community Care Day for Devastated Area

What a day! 100.7 KGBI in Omaha got to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a community still trying to recover from the 2019 historic flooding in Nebraska.

The KGBI Community Care Day for King Lake on Saturday was a partnership with Omaha Rapid Response, an international and local relief organization that’s been working to help the impoverished community come back from almost total devastation for the past year and a half.

More than 150 volunteers worked in the small, mostly off-the-grid area just outside the Omaha Metro. 19 homes were stocked with wood for the winter (many residents depend on wood for heating), three roofs were replaced, flood debris was cleared from six properties and one garage was painted. And, according to Ken Gruber, president of Omaha Rapid Response, “Love, hope, and caring were displayed and given throughout the entire community.” He added that the number of volunteers was, “A very good turnout especially on a Huskers home game day!”

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
