It Takes An Army To Raise Human Dignity Products
Dear Dignity Helpers,
42 Holy Spirit Catholic School Kids change lives!
You are helping do amazing things in the KC Metro area. Thank you all for believing in dignity for all people and working to help people get clean so they can succeed.
Giving the Basics Welcomes New Board Members
Giving the Basics is growing and getting stronger every day. We are proud and thankful to add some new board members to our amazing board of directors. We know our new board members will help keep our heart and our vision in tact and offer great guidance for financial and legal oversight because they strongly support what we do for the Kansas City Metro area.
Our Growing Army of Volunteers
At Giving the Basics we are busily counting, sorting and casing human dignity products for the 54 registered pantry locations in the KC Metro area. We couldn't do our powerful work without our volunteers who are a blessing to Kansas City and to Giving the Basics. The generous work they do to help us prepare for pantry pick up day goes on all month long. We have a great time getting ready to load our products into the pantry trucks when they arrive. We are proud to see Kansas City area business, churches, schools, organizations and individuals have product drives and offer financial assistance to Giving the Basics because our city is getting stronger one tube of toothpaste, one roll of toilet paper and one bar of soap at a time.
We are happy to give a shout out to our volunteers from Rockhurst High School, Notre Dame de Sion High School, Holy Spirit Catholic Youth Group and Ascension Catholic School. Adding them to our list just makes things go smoother.
How you are all making a difference for Human Dignity
The list continues to grow for organizations who have signed up to have product drives for us. Thank you all and please pass the word to other people to join in the fun!
Upcoming Dignity Drives
In August we will participate in the Great Midwest Balloon Festival and we hope to be the winning charity balloon to receive a nice donation.
We want to thank our corporate donors, all of whom are mentioned on our website www.givingthebasics.org for their generous support and confidence in what we are doing to help strengthen Kansas City Metro with THE BASICS.
