SWCC carpenters aim to help Joplin rebuild
• Program selling $6 take-and-bake pizzas to raise money for Joplin trip; Plan to rebuild homes there over spring break
Southwestern Community College's carpentry and building trades students from Osceola and Creston are planning to go on a trip to Joplin, Mo., in March to help rebuilding efforts.
In May 2011, Joplin sustained the deadliest tornado in the United States since 1947. The EF5 tornado killed 158 people, left approximately 1,000 people injured and destroyed more than 7,000 houses.
Dennis Downing, carpentry instructor at SWCC in Creston, said rebuilding those 7,000 homes really means a lot to SWCC carpentry students, some of which witnessed firsthand the wrath of an EF2 tornado that damaged Creston and Southwestern's campus last April.
