JVM Helps Create New Fund for Families of First Responders

There’s no higher calling than protecting and serving others. The families of those who answer that call deserve all the support they can get. 

To help, the Joplin Regional Community Foundation (JRCF) has created a new charitable fund: “Answering The Call”. The fund assists the children of public safety officers in Jasper and Newton Counties who are killed or injured in the line of duty. 

Not only are we proud to support “Answering The Call”, we’ve been actively involved in making the fund a reality. Along with a group of other local leaders, our own Scott Vorhees is one of the JRCF Board Members who helped establish this new charitable initiative. 

We hope you’ll join us in assisting some of the most deserving families in our community. To learn more about the fund and donate online, visit www.cfozarks.org/answeringthecall
