Today we had about 12 families reclaim photos lost in the Joplin tornado that happened 2 years ago. We still have about 22,000 unclaimed photos and documents. So far we have returned just under 16,500 photos and/or documents.
Now, we are assisting Moore, Oklahoma in setting up a cleaning and processing site so they can return photos also.
We have a web site: "joplinrescuedphotos.org" or use the link at "fbccarthage.org"
There is a Facebook page also where all the photos are shown......."Lost Photos of Joplin"
If you have time please check out our sites.....Thanks
We are "National Disaster Photo Rescue".......or NDPR for short..
We are an all volunteer group and cover all expenses---no one is charged for their photos since they belong to them in the first place. Some have given donations to help with supplies and postage. We do mail some photos. This program is through our church but no church funds are used for it unless there is a designated donation.
It is such a joy to have these people get their photos back......God has truly blessed this ministry.
