NORTH PLATTE, Neb. The National Weather Service in North Platte is helping the community in a different way this week.

This is the 9th year the National Weather Service has dedicated one week to doing service for the community.

This year they conducted their services by running a food drive which will benefit the Salvation Army and PAWS-itive Partners.

On Saturday they also laid mulch around the trees at Cody Park in an effort to make the park look even more beautiful.
