Fremont Comes Together For Moore, Oklahoma Families

Posted: Updated:

FREMONT (kptm) - Over the past few weeks, we've seen hundreds of Nebraskan's coming together for the victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes.  Today, the town of Fremont focused on one group affected, children.

Seven local bands, numerous giveaways, and plenty of food, all to help the "Feed The Children," Oklahoma disaster relief fund.

"This is an agency, an organization down in Moore Oklahoma that deals directly with those kids that were lost, that died and the families," event organizer Robert Figueroa says.

He and his wife created M.O.B. Fest or the Moore, Oklahoma benefit after watching the devastation on television.  They say it was something they had to do.  "We're just like what would we do if that was our child?  We don't know anybody in Moore, Oklahoma, but it really touched our hearts so I thought I want to do something.  I know Fremont, it's a great community and we pull together whenever there's a benefit so I said I want to have a benefit for these people," Tonnya Figueroa says.

"We were on the same page and feeling really devastated by what happened to Moore, Oklahoma, especially the children that really hit home, it really did and you wouldn't think so but it's about making sure humanity stays strong."

Coming together as a community, to make a difference for kids, hurting hundreds of miles away. 

If you couldn't make it to the event, you can still help out.  Donations are being collected the rest of the week at First State bank in Fremont under the name "M.O.B. Fest."
