Numbers Behind Joplin Donation Money
JOPLIN - The Heart of Missouri United way collected more than a million dollars to help tornado recovery efforts in Joplin. The local United way partnered with the Joplin United Way to make sure the donations went directly to the beneficiaries who needed the help as quickly as possible.
A four member group in Joplin was formed immediately after May 22nd to review how many donations were coming in, and review Joplin applications requesting assistance. Enclosed is a list of the beneficiaries and how much money each received. Contributions for the current Heart of Missouri United Way fund drive stay here in Mid-Missouri and do not go to Joplin efforts.
