Local Woman Helping Joplin Recover

Posted by wlpo on May 26, 2011

Watching the destruction in Joplin, Missouri on TV is nothing like seeing it firsthand.  St. Bede Academy Graduate Anna Marini is in Joplin with an AmeriCorps team.  Marini says it’s a completely different story when you see the damage in person.

Her group arrived Tuesday at the Missouri State University where she worked at the volunteer reception center coordinating volunteers and collecting donations.

Yesterday she went door -to-door seeing what they could do to the homes.  She also worked with members of the Air Force to collect damage accounts.
