The Missouri State Emergency Management Agency page is a good place to start for immediate and long term financial and personal time donation for Missouri Disasters.

Here is the Illinois Emergency Management Agency start page.

Both pages should be updated with latest disaster information.

According to the Salvation Army, state emergency management officials indicate bottled water and monetary donations as the best ways to assist those impacted.


  • Convoy of Hope transports truckloads of essential supplies such as water and ready-to-eat meals to the affected areas and works with on-site local officials to distribute these supplies. Those wanting to help can make a secure online donation at www.convoyofhope.org or can make a $10 text donation by texting the word, CONVOY to 50555. Standard message and date rates apply.
  • The Salvation Army provids emergency relief services to survivors and first responders

    • By phone: 1-800-SAL-ARMY –
    • Online at: www.donate.salvationarmyusa.org


  • Red Cross emergency response vehicles are helping to transport supplies to shelters. Those who want to help people affected by disasters can make a donation to support American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Visit www.redcross.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS; people can also text the word "REDCROSS" to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Contributions may also be sent to local American Red Cross chapters or to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013.
  • From Feeding America, here is a link to a list of food agencies that are helping the hungry in tornado-striken areas.
  • Missouri residents with medical skills who want to help, can go to www.Showmeresponse.org
  • To help shelter the pet animal victims go to the Humane Society of Missour Disaster Relief Response Team to make a donation.

    Please feel free to add links to other agencies PROFESSIONALLY AND DIRECTLY involved that I haven't covered, here, below.
