The Vermeer Charitable Foundation is teaming up with Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Relief to send some local volunteers to Joplin, Missouri.

Terry Butler of Vermeer Corporation says the group of nine will be in Joplin over the weekend and into next week to help with tarping of roofs and tree removal, along with helping to provide spiritual and emotional support to those affected by the May tornadoes.

The Vermeer Charitable Foundation has sent volunteers to disaster sites such as Parkersburg, Attica, Cedar Falls and many others in the past.
