Lincoln, Neb.-based Super Saver stores joined with the Cornhusker Chapter of the American Red Cross to deliver much-needed water to areas struck by wildfires in the Niobrara River Valley of north-central Nebraska. Super Saver answered a call for water from the Red Cross by donating nearly 7,000 bottles. The pallets of water will replenish supplies that were depleted during recent days. The wildfires were declared 100 percent contained Monday.
“We’re glad we can help the Red Cross with their response to the wildfires,” said Pat Raybould, president of B&R Stores. “We’re thankful for the firefighters’ heroic efforts and the work of the Red Cross.”.
B&R Stores Inc., an employee-owned company, was founded in 1964 by Russ Raybould. Since then the company has grown to include four store concepts (Russ’s Market, Super Saver, Save Best Foods and Grand Central Apple Market) located in seven cities across Nebraska and Iowa.
