Show-Me U Care

Show-Me U Care Logo

Homes destroyed … lives lost … schools in shambles … the landscape scarred.
That was Joplin after a massive tornado tore through the town on May 22, 2011.
Most relief agencies are gone now, but the need continues.
Be part of the effort to rebuild Joplin.

Volunteers are needed to plant trees, make minor repairs, help
families move, clean up small debris, and sort and distribute donated items.

Join the Show-Me U Care campaign to send Missouri college
students, faculty and staff to Joplin throughout the fall to build
Joplin’s future … campus by campus.
