Community Foundation of SE Kansas Accepting Donations for Baxter Springs and Quapaw
The Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas is now ready to accept donations for those impacted by Sunday's tornado that damaged Quapaw and Baxter Springs. Executive Director Cathy White explains.
"We are a receiving agent. In other words, people who want to send money to support the effort may not know where to send the money or may not have trust in some of the groups that have come in, but we can make sure the money's used properly. And often times, the donors are not only looking to help immediately, they're looking for what can be done to help later on down the road. We can use those donations for later grants."
You can either donate to the Disaster Relief Fund or specify specific projects in either Quapaw or Baxter Springs. To donate online visit www.southeastkansas.org, and if you need more info call 620-231-8897.
