Renew Hope for Joplin
June 16, 2011
On May 22, 2011, an F5 tornado, over a mile wide, tore a 6 mile long path through the south side of Joplin, MO changing lives forever. The Liberty Branch has teamed up with the Salvation Army & the MOMs Club of Liberty to help donate what we can to help those recovering from this horrific storm.
When you enter the library from Saturday, June 11th to Saturday, June 25th, you’ll see a collection barrel in both vestibules. The items we’re collecting are diapers, wipes, toys, games, cleaning supplies, toothbrushes, shampoo, deodorant, and kid’s books. The Salvation Army has requested that we do not collect clothing due to storage issues and having an outpouring of clothing already to distribute to those in need. This collection of items will be held at the Liberty Branch of MCPL only.
We thank you for your support and generosity in helping our fellow Missourians find their way.
