Thanks to Chris Stedman for letting me know about this:
The Joplin mosque is the centerpiece of a thriving and well-rooted community in Joplin, Missouri. It is the only mosque within a 50-mile radius, and serves both the local Muslim community as well as the community at large. During last year’s tornados, the Joplin mosque served as a headquarters for Muslim relief workers who flew in from around the country to see what they could do to help Joplin residents get back on their feet.
Unfortunately, in the middle of Ramadan a suspicious fire burned our mosque to the ground, and our community is left without a home during the most precious time of the year. While heartbroken, we are buoyed by the support of people around this country, of all faiths, who have come to our side in our time of need. The rebuilding begins now.
