On behalf of the Society of Professional Journalists’ St. Louis, Southwest Missouri and Kansas City professional chapters, the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation has donated $2,500 to help Joplin Globe employees who lost their homes in the May 22 tornado.
“Despite suffering personal tragedy, these journalists have carried on the work their community needs and expects of them at such a difficult time,” said Steve Geimann, president of the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation. “They are a beacon that will help Joplin become a stronger community. For that, we are proud to call them peers.”
The donation was made to the Missouri Press Foundation’s Joplin fund.
