JOPLIN, Mo.– The Food Not Bombs chapter in Joplin held a fundraiser Saturday for summer supplies for the area’s homeless population.
Food Not Bombs is a mutual aid group in Joplin that aims to help the area’s homeless community. Because they are a mutual aid group, everything they supply comes from members of the group. And as we approach summer, they’re in need of more supplies.
The fundraiser was held at the Old Broadway Club to get supplies such as hydration packets, water, and other needs.
People in attendance were able to enjoy a full day of dancing, drinks, and food. They were also asked to bring a bag of non-perishable food items or hydration packs to be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate. There were raffles for other items as well.
