The India Association of Nebraska and the Hindu Temple of Omaha donated $54,000 to the United Way of the Midlands’ flood relief fund.

The money was raised in response to March flooding that devastated much of Nebraska and Iowa.

The India Association — a nonprofit group that promotes understanding and awareness of Indian culture, language and heritage — and the Hindu Temple held benefit luncheon on March 31 at the Hindu Temple Community Center.

The event drew more than 1,300 people and was put on by more than 200 volunteers from the Indian community, according to the United Way.

The check for the donation was presented Sunday at the Hindu Temple Social Hall.
