Shoes for Joplin


Our friend Susan Myshka, a Jonesboro chiropractor, wanted to help the victims of the Joplin, Mo. tornado, so she phoned a couple of Joplin churches.

One of the most urgent needs, she learned, is shoes. Hundreds and hundreds of people lost their shoes when their homes were destroyed by an EF5 tornado Sunday evening.

That was yesterday. Today Susan is busy collecting shoes, used and new, for a project she calls Walk a Mile in My Shoes.

Susan is accepting donations of shoes for men, women and children at her Myshka Chiropractic office at 2817 S. Caraway Road from now until 6:30 p.m. Thursday (tomorrow). All kinds of shoes will do, except for high heels.

She’ll haul the shoes up to Joplin early Friday morning for distribution by churches there.

She can be reached at 870-761-5661 or at
