Jefferson City Tornado Relief – Green Health Docs Offers Support
A powerful storm system recently plowed through Jefferson City in Missouri. While this storm won’t slow the progress of medical marijuana in the Show-Me State, our team wanted to offer our support in providing Jefferson City tornado relief. We also outline where and how you can contribute to this cause.
Tornado in Jefferson
The news that Jefferson City in Missouri was struck by a powerful tornado hit our team hard. These types of storms are horrific, no mater where you are. And this year has been particularly tough, with several more weeks of tornado season still to come.
According to KC3 in Kansas City, the Jefferson City tornado drew a staggering 32-mile path of destruction before finally dissipating. Flooding into the Missouri river is ongoing. The city expects it to take months, if not years, for the community in Jefferson City to return to its former glory. Below is drone footage of the tragic aftermath, provided by Fox 2 in St. Louis.
Green Health Docs Joins Jefferson City Tornado Relief Efforts
The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team was absolutely devastated to learn about what this tornado did to our community here in Missouri. Patrick Wilson, Green Health Docs patient advocate, was able to drive around and snap some photos of the damage, included here in this post. “This place is torn apart,” he noted. “And in order to be in service to the community, we must be OF service to the community. That’s why we’ve got to help out.”
The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team quickly joined forces with other local businesses, including Elite Home Growers, Anteedote X Consulting, Regus Columbia and Affiliated Court Services. Together, we have taken up a small collection to help out our fellow neighbors.
“We are more than just a medical marijuana clinic,” Dr. Anand Dugar, owner of Green Health Docs stated. “Green Health Docs is a part of Missouri’s ever-evolving community, and we are wanted to be able to provide whatever relief we could for those affected by this terrible storm.”
