Joplin Man Launches "Joplin Loves Pilger" Campaign
A Joplin man is spearheading an effort to help a Nebraska town that was recently devastated by an EF-4 tornado. Doug Hunt tells News Talk KZRG what the "Joplin Loves Pilger" campaign is all about.
"It was on my heart to go up and just help them, so I drove up last Saturday, and it really hit me when I was speaking to the survivors. When they found out I was from Joplin, there was such emotion... one young lady threw her arms around me and said 'You know.'"
To help, you can donate at the Pinnacle Bank on South Main Street in Joplin, where 100% of donations will go to the town's recovery efforts, or visit the "Joplin Loves Pilger" page on Facebook to learn more.
