#NEBRASKASTRONG DRIVE FOR FLOOD RELIEF ON FRIDAY MARCH 22

NBA Members:

 

The “#NebraskaStrong Drive for Flood Relief” will take place this Friday, March 22nd, from 5am – 11pm Central time.

 

- We urge all member stations to promote this through every platform: on air (live & recorded), newscasts, crawls, online, social media, email blasts, etc.

 

- The number to call on Friday:  1-844-278-8555

 

- Red Cross volunteers will staff a phone bank at a multiline Omaha Steaks call center.  We expect very high call volume so wait times are inevitable. 

 

- This Dropbox link contains logos, scripts, audio & photos to assist your efforts:  (Customize any and all to meet your needs, or create your own)

- Please include “The Nebraska Broadcasters Association” with your station ID in all messaging

 

 

- You will receive “tote board” updates via email throughout Friday as I receive them.

 

- For stations wishing to cover the call center and interview Red Cross personnel:  availability info is forthcoming.      

 

 

Tragedy brings out the best in broadcasters.  Let’s give this our best effort to help the thousands of people whose lives have been impacted.

 

On behalf of the NBA Board of Directors, thank you for your participation!
