Joplin Tornado

The thoughts and prayers of the Loyola community are with those who have been affected by the recent tornado in Joplin, Missouri.

On Sunday, May 29, the collection at the 10:30 am Mass at the Lake Shore Campus went to fund relief efforts.

If you would like to support the people of Joplin, Loyola recommends the following resources:

1. The American Red Cross or Catholic Charities or the United Way of Southwest Missouri

2. Text "Joplin" to 864833 to make a $10 donation to the Joplin Tornado Relief Fund

3. Make a blood donation

4. Visit Missouri's official tornado relief and restoration site
