JOPLIN, Mo. — Soroptimist International of Joplin is currently accepting orders for premium, gourmet nuts, candies, and snacks during their signature annual fundraising event. Deadline for orders is October 6, 2022.

Monies raised from the campaign will fund the annual Camp Soroptimist, a recreational retreat for Jasper County children in foster care. The camp has been Soroptimist International of Joplin’s keystone annual service project since 1984, when members of Soroptimist International of Joplin and employees of the Jasper County Division of Social Services/Children’s Division came together to focus on the needs of foster children in our area.
