Give Joplin Day!

Circles of Joplin, along with 21 other local agencies, are proud to be a part of Give Joplin Day. This is an opportunity to donate to your favorite local charity so that their essential programs can continue to be funded.

Circles' Give Joplin Day page is now up at https://causemomentum.org/projects/eliminating-poverty-in-joplin and we would love to see as much activity as possible during the event!

Give Joplin Day is an annual event hosted by the Joplin Regional Community Foundation, a subsidiary of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks (CFO). CFO representatives and local coordinators for Give Joplin Day will be on site at Joplin's Panera Bread from 10am to 6pm on the day of the event, Thursday, July 19th. Feel free to drop in at Panera during those hours to visit with them. Also, keep your eyes and ears on the local media as a number of TV and radio stations along with print publications are planning on reporting from Panera on Give Joplin Day!

Circles Weekly Community Meeting


The annual Circles "Old Fashioned Christmas Party" was Thursday evening, December 28th at Scott Vorhees' "No Excuses" gym! Santa Vorhees gifted the Circles Leaders and Allies with the run of the place and a fantastic time was had by all! After a festive potluck dinner, the group enjoyed a white elephant gift exchange, charades, and a wild game of Pictionary (we're still not sure what Chandice Horine was drawing but some of the guesses included a porpoise and a fried egg). Everybody took a break so we could get a picture of some happy parents and children.
