A local Chadron business is helping the community with a food and toy drive.

Racheal's ReThreads and Consignment is hosting a food and toy drive through Dec. 21. You can drop off items at 261 Main Street in Chadron.

"It's something that I've always wanted to do," said Racheal's ReThreads owner, Racheal Miller. "At the same time I've been there and there's not really a whole lot of resources for people around here to help them."

Miller said people can donate new or used toys, board games, nonperishable food items, gift cards to buy nonperishable items, and monetary donations. She said they will accept checks, and donations from credit cards.

Miller reminds residents that they will get a 20% discount in the store when they donate to the food and toy drive. She added that Chadron State College students, first responders, and teachers in Chadron receive a 10% discount when shopping at the store. That would in turn be a total of 30% when donating.

You can find more information about the food and toy drive on the Racheal's ReThreads facebook page here:

Western Nebraska hospital reports ransomware attack

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) — A North Platte hospital is investigating a cyberattack that officials say has not compromised patient information.

Great Plains Health says the ransomware attack became apparent Monday night. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security describes ransomware as a software designed to deny access to a computer system or data until a ransom is paid.

A hospital Facebook posting says some patient procedures and appointments have been canceled, but the hospital is continuing operations without email or other electronic communication.

Officials say paper records are being maintained.
