Butler Supply Helping Joplin Recover from Tornado

Butler Supply, Fenton, Mo., would like to encourage other companies in the electrical industry to join them in supporting the efforts of JoplinSpirit, a group of volunteers from Edwardsville, Glen Carbon and Troy, Ill., who are dedicated to community-to-community giving and are working to help residents of Joplin, Mo., recover from the devastating tornado that struck the city in May. Through their local partnership with Lewis & Clark Habitat for Humanity and Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity, they have reached out within their community to collect money, supplies and labor to build a home in Joplin. Butler Supply recently supported their effort by donating funds and material. Ken Wyatt, Butler Supply branch manager in Maryville Ill., was instrumental in coordinating the details with JoplinSpirit.
