The cold temperatures may be held at bay for the time being but winter is around the corner. To help out, the New Life Evangelistic Center of Joplin is offering assistance to those less fortunate this holiday season. Assistance was also offered to help get those who have been issued shut-off notices a chance to keep their gas and electricity on. If you would like to make a donation to help out, you can call 417-781-0005. Or drop donations off at the center. It is located at 831 Moffet in Joplin.
