Thank you to all who made it out to Super Saturday 2. It is wonderful to have such caring neighbors always willing to reach out and help in times of need. This 2nd Super Saturday was a follow up to the 1st one held in June this year where we raised 14,000 pounds of donations in a 12 hr period. As we mentioned before, mplstornado folks are here for the long term. We will have several more events coming up as we move into winter. Thank you!
