A tornado tore through Jonesboro, Arkansas on Saturday. The damage is pretty serious, but no deaths have been reported, as mentioned by CNN. There are 22 injuries from the tornado. Now, it’s time to clean everything up. In addition to authorities working to clean up the debris, some of the Duggar kids are pitching in to help. This isn’t the first time they’ve volunteered to help with relief efforts.

Jana, Jed, and other Duggar kids help out

On social media Wednesday, Jana Duggar shared a post. She talks about how important Arkansas is to her, saying, “Arkansas is an immensely special place to me. It is HOME!” Then, she goes on to talk about feeling like she needed to go help. She adds, “So when a tornado hit Jonesboro, Arkansas, last weekend I knew I wanted to volunteer to help those who had lost their homes. My heart goes out to the families, businesses and communities affected by the tornado! But I know from experience that people in Arkansas come together, and I was proud to see so many people there to offer a helping hand!”

At the end of her social media post, she says that she’s praying for those who have been impacted by the tornado. Her post also features pictures of herself and the Medic Corps helping with the cleanup. Medic Corps is a non-profit organization that Jana, her brothers, and some of the Bates kids are a part of. They volunteer in different areas. Lawson Bates went to Tennessee at the beginning of March to help with tornado cleanup there.

Jed Duggar also revealed that he is helping out in Jonesboro right now. He shared a post that’s similar to Jana’s, featuring pictures of the damage. He said that he’s grateful for the opportunity to help with the cleanup efforts. And, he commented on how great it is to see everyone coming together during these challenging times.

Jana’s friend Laura DeMasie heads to Jonesboro

Laura DeMasie is a friend of the Duggar family. She also went to Jonesboro to help after the tornado. She posted on social media and wrote, “It was hopeful to see volunteers ready and eager to lend a helping hand to those in need, and do so with a smile!” Laura also shared several pictures of the wreckage as they all worked to clean up.

In response to the Duggar kids’ posts and Laura’s post, Duggar fans are leaving encouraging messages. They seem very grateful for all the hard work they are putting in during this time. Some are pointing out how selfless it is for them to be doing this amid the coronavirus pandemic. They’re putting others before themselves once again.

Where in Arkansas do the Duggars live?

After Duggar fans heard that there was a tornado in Arkansas, some of them grew worried. Well, fans of the 19 Kids & Counting and Counting On family can relax a little bit. The family lives in Tonitown, Arkansas, so they weren’t directly affected by the tornado. Because their family is okay, they thought that this would be a good opportunity to help those who need it right now.

So, what do you think of the Duggar kids helping out? Share your thoughts below.
