SPRINGFIELD, MO.The team purchased 40,000 pounds of rice to be delivered to a newly acquired warehouse later today. Additional supplies will be purchased and delivered so bagging operations can begin. The first shipment from Springfield is expected to arrive on Sunday.
We have worked with local partners to identify three cities that will serve as distribution hubs over the next few months: Rio Grande, Mayaguez and Santa Isabel.
