JOPLIN, MO.--- The Southwest Missouri Fraternal Order of Police will be collecting items at the Qdoba restaurant in Joplin on Saturday. They will accept any nonperishable food, clothing, or personal hygiene items. Once the truck is loaded up they will transport it to the Northeast. For every donation, Qdoba will also donate a free meal. Organizers say so many people helped us during the tornado, it's only natural to give back.
"This is what we do. They've helped us. They sent numerous truck loads of stuff down to help here. We wanted to be able to do for them now," states Detective Chris Carriger, Jasper County Sheriff.
The truck will be parked at Qdoba this Saturday from 8 a.m. until they fill up the truck. Qdoba is located at 3102 east 7th street across from Target.
