Brothers in the Fraternity and the community at large will be helped through designated donations, restricted to use by victims of the Joplin area devastation and the recovery effort in the community.
Those who wish to volunteer for the clean-up efforts may do so by clicking the United Way's “Sign-Up to Volunteer” link at http://www.211missouri.org/.
The Scottish Rite Valley of Joplin continues to feed volunteers and will be in need of assistance cooking and serving food beginning on Tuesday. Please contact the Valley’s office at (417) 623-3219 if you would like to help. If you would like to make a donation, you may send a check payable to the Scottish Rite Valley of Joplin with the notation “tornado disaster relief”.
