How you can help with Tornado recovery in Joplin
About 90 miles to the west of Branson, our neighbors in the Joplin area have been affected by strong, destructive storms. Volunteers and support personnel from all over Southwest Missouri, including the Branson area, have already made their way to Joplin to assist recovery efforts there.
We keep our friends and neighbors in our thoughts and prayers as they deal with this devastating loss.
