MO Business Disaster Offices

by User Not Found | Jun 09, 2011

After a week of so much chaos, it is with a heavy but hopeful heart that I write this next blog.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and businesses that were so devastated by the tornado that ravaged Joplin.  We also want to send our support to Sedalia, St. Louis, Taney, Butler,  Mississippi and New Madrid counties.  It has been a difficult last month.  

As many people start to pick up the pieces, I want to share a brief story about how MOSourceLink’s contacts and resources are helping businesses rebuild.

Shortly after the tornado struck St. Louis, our offices received a request regarding when the SBA Disaster Office would open in St. Louis.  After foraging our way through the information of who to contact and what information was available, we stumbled upon THE most helpful SBA Public Information Officer, Mark Randle.  And, I want to give him the appropriate due:  “Thank You!” Mark Randle, you are great!

Eager and ready to get the word out, Mark has been gracious with his time as well as information.  After hearing I was trying to track him down, Mr. Randle contacted our offices to see who needed information about the Disaster Offices.  He immediately called the economic developer who prompted this search and set up an appointment for the next day.  THE NEXT DAY!  Now that’s service. 

This is just a brief reminder that in a world of bureaucratic red tape, there are people who care and want to ensure the lines of communications are reaching those who need it most.

Below you will find the information we’ve received regarding SBA Disaster Offices.  Please check our website often as we plan to continue updates as well as provide more information about federal disaster loans.  Be safe everyone!
