We’re deeply sorry that you had a negative experience working with our team in Joplin after the horrific tornado struck that area. We can assure you any and all supplies donated by organizations, individuals and church groups went towards helping victims of that terrible disaster. We were blessed to spend two months on the ground helping remove debris, feeding hungry families and helping restore homes.
