KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Blood drives. Clothing drives. Food drives, even for pets. Diapers, bottled water and hygiene products.
As recovery efforts continue in Joplin, Mo., generosity has overflowed from churches, sports teams, Scout troops and even dry cleaners gathering items for tornado victims.
So much generosity, in fact, that emergency officials now say that the tornado-ravaged city has been overwhelmed with unsolicited donations. And that, they say, could confuse efforts to aid those affected by the disaster.
