Ten for Joplin project

Beginning on Oct 29, Tulsa and Joplin Habitat for Humanity agencies are teaming together with hundreds of volunteers to build ten houses in sixteen days. The Ten for Joplin project will help place ten families impacted by the May 22 tornado into a home of their own. This project gives those in the surrounding areas a chance to contribute time and effort to help their neighbors in need in Joplin’s ongoing rebuilding process.

A wall-raising ceremony will kick off the rebuilding blitz at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 29, at the intersection of E. 22nd St. and S. Kentucky Ave. in Joplin. Sponsors, Habitat for Humanity teams, and hundreds of volunteers will begin the sixteen day building spree.

The media is encouraged to take part in this step for Joplin. Media credentials and check-in are required at the command central tent, located at 2226 E. 23rd St. (northwest corner of 23rd St. and S. Kentucky Ave.). Parking will be available on the 2300 block of S. Pennsylvania Ave. Please wear close-toed shoes at all times, and a hardhat if on the worksites. Special story requests and live shots should be coordinated through Jane Dunbar at 918-607-5281. Interviews with family members can be arranged by contacting Scott Clayton at 417-782-6533.
