JOPLIN, Mo. — Residents of a southwest Missouri city devastated by a 2011 tornado are reaching out to the northeast Nebraska town of Pilger, which was torn apart by a tornado last week.

Joplin residents Thursday announced a "Joplin Loves Pilger" campaign to help victims of the June 16 tornado in Pilger.

The Joplin Globe reported that the campaign includes a Facebook page to offer encouragement and an account at Pinnacle Bank in Joplin, with all proceeds to go to the Pilger Community Development Fund.

The May 2011 tornado damaged hundreds of homes and businesses and killed 161 people in Joplin.

Joplin resident Doug Hunt, who was working Saturday in Pilger, said the campaign is part of his efforts to thank the people who helped him and his city.
