JOPLIN TORNADO RELIEF AND RESOURCES … A Bright Futures team from Joplin has launched a Web site called RebuildJoplin.org. This Web site is a comprehensive resource for people affected by the storm AND for those who wish to help. If you are able to help, please consider going to the Web site and get connected with verified agencies.
These agencies and resources are screened and verified. RebuildJoplin.org is endorsed by the city of Joplin, Joplin schools, Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce and United Way 2-1-1.
RebuildJoplin.org, an initiative launched by Bright Futures, will adjust to the changing needs of community relief efforts. Joplin schools created Bright Futures as a grass roots, community based program that creates partnerships and utilizes community resources for the common goal of helping our kids and strengthening our families and community. In the wake of the destruction, Bright Futures is adapting a successful program to meet the needs of those impacted by the tornado.
