Melissa Bates, Dan Bates' daughter-in-law and Carl's first cousin once removed, said the family has been surprised by the national attention on the community pulling together.
"It’s not a new thing. Farmers have been pulling together like this forever, when someone is ill or has an accident, just in our daily life," she said. "It wasn’t like it was a big deal to organize it. People are just like, 'Oh yeah I’ll come and donate a day.' It wasn’t even thought about. We just come together and do it. Even people who were not very close to their family wanted to be involved. I think if they are in the same situation, you can’t do it by yourself."
Local grain broker Rumbold and Kuhn donated 12 of 16 trucks for the work that took place on September 25.
