Headline Oversells Social Media Angle

The Nonprofit Quarterly reports how Missouri Foundation for Health is using social media to reach grantees following the devastating Joplin tornadoes.

In fact, because communications are so spotty since the storm hit, the foundation is still unsure of the fate of some of their grantees – small clinics, domestic violence programs, and behavioral health facilities – that were in the path of the tornado. Since early Monday morning the foundation has tried hard to make sure that all grantees – and even non-grantees – know that they are ready and willing to make emergency grants to them for health related needs.

Well, the foundation is talking with different elected officials via Twitter. Other than that, we didn’t see much information in the story itself about social media. However, it’s a good report indicating the difficulties faced by those responding to the Missouri tornadoes.
