Center Supplies Needs of Storm Survivors

The Salvation Army's supply center offers baby items and other necessities.

Many families and individuals affected by the devastating string of tornadoes have lost much, if not all, of their belongings. In Joplin, MO, The Salvation Army offers them a place where they can go to begin to rebuild.

We’ve opened a center at the former Salvation Army thrift store located at 7th & Kentucky where we’re providing survivors with emergency services and supplies.

It’s open daily from 9:00am – 5:00pm to the general public, particularly those affected by the May 22nd tornado. Supplies are rationed based on family size and need, but there is an abundance of supplies, and applicants are involved in picking out what they will be able to use. There are also programs available to find help for those who need medical attention and long term housing.

There is no set limit for the number of times people may come in for supplies; the process is based simply off of need.

It’s just one way we’re helping those in need get back on their feet and have hope for tomorrow.
