Darla’s Room – Bright Futures Joplin’s Donation Center has been established as a centralized location where donations can be housed and sent directly to meet student needs within 24 hours. If a child needs a coat, shoes or school supplies, we can immediately provide that resource, while we work with our team of counselors to help ensure that the student and family have the community connections and ongoing supports in place to be successful not just for today, but long term.
Here’s a list of the things Darla’s Room needs right now:
- New packages of men’s, women’s, boys’ & girls’ socks in all sizes, but especially youth sizes.
