  3. @Kim @Margaret,
    Thank you for wanting to send supplies, but we’re encouraging those who want to help to NOT donate clothing items. FEMA reports that Joplin is overwhelmed with more unsolicited donations than they need. The influx of donations can actually cause important, life-saving efforts to be diverted to storing, sorting, and distributing items that may not even meet survivors’ needs.
