Distribution PODs have now been set up to start taking donated items to send to Joplin, Missouri.

The PODs are located at Ralph’s Supermarket near Pelican Point and Lamendola’s, both on Hwy. 44.

Donations of electrolyte based beverages, hygiene products for both men and women, books and games for children, and non-perishable food items are being accepted.

The items will be distributed among different shelters in the city of Joplin to assist with the needs of the many residents of that area still homeless from the recent tornadoes in the area.
