The recent tornado in Joplin, Missouri has become the deadliest in the states history, ravaging homes and displacing most of it’s 50,000 residents. Many families have lost loved ones and their homes and now need more help than ever in this time of need.

Natural disaters can happen frequently in our lives, but they never really hit home until it they effect us, or someone we know or love. It will take a great deal of will-power and time to recover from these devastating events and the more we can help the faster Joplin will recover.

There are many organizations that are taking donations, whether it be food, monetary donation, or clothes, and Joplin residents need these things much more than us right now. Below are some links to these organizations, so please get to gathering and help our neighbors in need.
