St. Louis Supply Drive for Joplin Begins Saturday

Nearly three months after the devastating tornado in Joplin, residents are in the slow process of rebuilding their lives. As time wears on and the media moves on to other events, the need continues. The Florissant Knights of Columbus, City of Florissant and The Salvation Army are teaming up to help fill the need. They will be collecting items during the month of August and volunteers are needed to sort and box donated items. The items will be delivered to The Salvation Army in Joplin on Saturday, August 27 th.

They are looking to collect cleaning supplies, household items and non-perishable food. Clothing items are not needed at this time.
Volunteers are needed Wednesday-Friday, August 24-26th. Two hour shifts are available each day: 8am-10am; 10am-Noon; Noon-2pm; 2pm-4pm; 4pm-6pm and 6pm-8pm. The location will be the Knights of Columbus – St. Rose Philippine Duchesne Hall at 50 Rue St Francois, Florissant, MO, 63031. This is great volunteer opportunity for all ages. Children under the age of 14 years are welcome to volunteer as long as there is an adult guardian with them.
