Joplin Recovery Collection

On the evening of Sunday, May 22nd, Joplin was devastated by a massive tornado and severe weather.
Joplin is located in Southwest Missouri, approximately 60 miles west of Springfield. To see more about the tornadoes devastation click here

Like many other organizations, PROMO and Show Me No Hate are coordinating a statewide effort of collection sites for monetary donations and supplies. Our LGBT and ally friends have been directly affected by this tornado, including the destruction of the Spirit of Christ MCC of Joplin and many of the congregation members' homes, including the home of the pastor and his partner. 100% of donations will benefit the Spirit of Christ Metropolitan Community Church. As the LGBT-affirming church in Joplin, they will be able to distribute the donations to the LGBT community in Joplin.

You may give a donation by credit card on this donation page, or you may bring cash, checks, or supplies* to one of our confirmed collection sites.
Please make checks out to Spirit of Christ MCC.

*Supplies collected include:
