TAMKO Building Products, Inc., one of the nation’s leading manufacturers of residential and commercial roofing products, recently donated $1,000 to the Joplin Softball Little League team to help pay for travel to St. Louis, Missouri for the State Softball Little League Tournament.

“The donation made by TAMKO takes a huge financial burden off of the team and the parents,” said Team Manager Mary McDaniel. “Since we are a local team, we very much appreciate TAMKO and their support.”

The softball team qualified for the state tournament after defeating Webb City’s Softball Little League team 12-11 at the regional tournament in early July.  The team was excited and ready to travel to St. Louis and represent Joplin at the state tournament after this amazing win.

Joplin Little League Softball was formed in 1975 to enhance the physical, social and educational well-being of children and to provide quality playing opportunities for all children. The program’s mission remains to promote, develop, and supervise the interest of every participating child. The league is designed and directed so that all kids, regardless of ability, have the opportunity to benefit from participation.

“TAMKO has been a part of Joplin and the surrounding communities for more than 70 years,” said TAMKO President and CEO David Humphreys. “Youth sports are an important part of our community, which is why we are pleased to make this donation.”

TAMKO also recently made a donation to the Carl Junction Middle School (CJMS) Archery Team to help the team pay for expenses to attend the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) World Tournament in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where the team placed 34th out of 79 teams from the U.S., Canada and Mongolia.

“It’s a joy to see local teams rising to this impressive level of competition,” said David Humphreys. “TAMKO has always been a big supporter of local youth and their sports teams. This donation is a reflection of our continued commitment to our local community and youth.”
