Salvation Army Joins Joplin Multi-Agency Resource Center

The Salvation Army has joined with The Bridge to become a part of the Multiple Agency Resource Center (M.A.R.C.) for Joplin disaster relief. The resource center consists of various charity organizations and local businesses offering services for storm victims. The M.A.R.C. offers the opportunity to access many services at one location including help with: housing, medical needs, debris removal, misc. supplies, counseling, emergency funding, new driver’s license, I.D., car title, unemployment, and much more. According to J.J. Travis of The Red Cross, “There is something here for every person affected by this disaster.”

Upon arrival at the M.A.R.C. survivors will go to The Red Cross to register for needed services. It’s helpful to have a form of identification and the address of the affected residence, but it is not required to receive assistance. Continuing support is available and provided based on the long term needs of individual survivors. The M.A.R.C. is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily and is located at 3405 S. Hammonds Blvd, Joplin, MO.

  1. Hello…
    I would like to help the tornado victims. I do not have any money to give, but I do have alot of clothing. Can you tell me where I can take these items to?

  2. How is it possible that there’s no link from the Salvation Army blog to the Salvation Army website, where people can make a donation? This would be an extremely helpful thing. I want to donate and it is not being made easy for me.

    (If there is an easy and obvious link and I’m just missing it, please forgive this comment. If there’s not, please rectify.)
