Here I am again…asking you to join me in helping those affected by the devastating tornado in Joplin, Missouri over the weekend!
I know that since many of my readers are local to Missouri, you have either been affected by this tragedy or know someone who has!
I have been receiving emails all morning from many of you and am trying to go through all the info (verify it) so as to put a list together of where and how to donate!
If you need to clear out some of that stockpile and help those affected… They are in severe need of Non-perishable food, flashlights and batteries, blankets, camping cookware, infant supplies including formula and diapers, new clothing including jackets and rain ponchos, and especially underwear and socks, tennis shoes, sunscreen, soap, deodorant, and other hygienic products, etc.
If you are local to the O Fallon, Missouri area…Once again, Starbucks at Highway K & Laura Hill will accept donations of items! These items will be delivered to Joplin on Friday!
Windsor Crossing Church has locations in Fenton and Chesterfield. They will be taking donations of bottled water and packaged snack items (granola bars, pretzels, etc.). They are leaving tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at 10am. They are asking for donations to be brought to either location tonight or to the Chesterfield location by 10am tomorrow.
You can visit the Friends of Joplin Facebook Page…they are working on getting lists together for items needed and drop points!
