An organization called "Veterans of Foreign Wars" handed out "Buddy" Poppies outside of both Walmart locations in Joplin. The poppies are free, but people who received them were encouraged to donate to the "Veterans of Foreign Wars" fund. That money in turn goes to several groups around Joplin such as Heartline Canines and Compass Quest. But organizers say most of the money goes to veterans around the area.
