Encouraging Joplin

SHINE.FM / Chicagoland recognized the need of tornado victims in the Joplin area and called on their listeners for help.

The recent tornado in Joplin left residents with nothing but splinters where homes once stood. Seeing that other organizations were meeting the needs of Joplin residents with food and water, SHINE sought to meet other necessities like clothing and toiletries. SHINE asked listeners to bring $10 gift cards from retailers like Wal-Mart, Target and gas stations to drop-off locations in their listening area.
