Missouri Press Association raised more than $75,000 to help the staff of The Joplin Globe, whose homes and vehicles were destroyed or severely damaged by the tornado. The Globe has "paid it forward" by donating part of their tornado relief funds back to the Missouri Press Foundation to provide monies to future newspaper staff members who are severely affected by a disaster in their own community.
Help contribute to this fund or if there is a need, please contact Missouri Press Association, 802 Locust St., Columbia, MO 65201. Phone (573)449-4167.
