This morning, Hurley put out word to the town that the shop – located at 1515 W. 10th, Ste. C near 10th & Maiden Ln. – was open and had both electricity and running water as well as other amenities including canned food, clean clothes and some bottled water. Locals in need are encouraged to stop in or call the store at 417-782-6642.
"We're just holed up in the store, and we've put out an alert on Facebook and Twitter – wherever we could – to say that we're here if anybody needs anything," said Hurley. "Honestly, we haven't had any takers here, but one of the hospitals in town was pretty much destroyed, and it's down the block. So the major road we're on is pretty much closed, but we're trying to do what we can in the meantime.
"I live about six blocks away, and I'm probably just going to be here 24 hours if anybody needs anything."
Anyone in the area in need of help or just a place to rest are encouraged to stop by Hurley's Heroes, and people not in Joplin interested in helping can do so through the Heart of Missouri United Way whose Joplin Relief Fund (100 percent of all donations will be given to relief efforts in Joplin) is accepting $10 donations by texts of "JOPLIN" to 864833. More information can be found at the organization's website. (http://www.uwheartmo.org)
