JOPLIN, MO.--- Cindy Wermuth remembers when donations filled the Joplin Family Worship Center in the wake of the tornado.
"To the right we had baby supplies and diapers and clothes and over here to the left we had hygiene products" states Cindy Wermuth.
This medical clinic was also one of the donations they received.
"It has medical supplies that are within it's a dispensary in that capacity," states Daniel Wermuth, Lead Pastor.
Now, the Wermuths need the community's help to pay it forward as the medical unit is redeployed to New York City. The center is collecting "like new" clothing items to help people affected by Sandy.
"There's still 2 million people without electricity. So we want to respond to that immediate need," states Cindy.
Joplin Family Worship leaders hope by the end of the week where I'm standing will be filled with gloves, hats, and coats.
"Something to keep a person warm while they're cleaning out their homes or cleaning up the debris or to keep them warm at this time," states Daniel.
The center is also accepting necessities like diapers and formula. While these items are necessities, messages of encouragement are also needed during this time. Cindy says she's hopeful they can fill the medical clinic with the supplies before sending it off.
"With joy and satisfaction knowing that we can pay it forward," states Cindy.
You can drop off donations at the Joplin Worship Center at 5290 East 7th Street until Friday morning. Leaders remind people to donate for all age groups, men tend to receive fewer donations.
