Joplin family appreciative of local donations

Send a link to a friend 

To the editor:

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the donations of food, clothing, gift cards and money for my family in Joplin, Mo. My mother, Diana Bradway (originally from Lincoln), and my niece Jessie and her son Carter lost everything when the tornado hit their apartment complexes.

My daughter Jenna and I made a trip over the Memorial Day weekend to take the donations to them. Needless to say, they were so thankful!

Thank you also to Elaine Aue at Culver's and Tim Searby at Castle Manor for allowing people to drop off their donations at those locations.

A big thank you to Jim Phelan for letting Jenna borrow his van to transport all the items. There was too much for my little SUV to hold.

Jenna and I would like to let everyone know how much their donations were appreciated.

Deb Givan
